New Delhi [India], July 02 (ANI): Chief Economic Adviser KV Subramanian said he is looking forward to the tabling of the Economic Survey in Parliament on Thursday.

"Looking forward with excitement to table my first - and the new Government's first - Economic Survey in Parliament on Thursday. #EcoSurvey2019" he tweeted on Tuesday.

The survey contains a summary of the performance on major development programmes, as well as the policy initiatives of the government and the prospects of the economy.

The first full-fledged budget of the Union Government will be tabled on Friday by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. (A
