The Finance Minister said that the global situation continues to be challenging and there is a need to be careful about the situation. He said that the export sector will face difficulties, as the global growth has slowed down. The government will work closely with these institutions, so that they can face adversity. Sitharaman said that there is a need for a substantive debate on freebies.
