India has registered ... and (has?) become


Senior Member

I'm wondering whether one needs to add ''has'' twice in this kind of sentence
''India has registered a spectacular period of expansion and (has) become a key driver of regional growth''

REmove it can be confusing, no?
Thank you very much

    Did you write this yourself, akawa?
    Or did someone else write it?

    I agree that removing 'has' is fine, especially since the two actions are so closely related as to become aspects of the same thing.
