    article for growth

    Hi,

    I found the following sentence in a newspaper. I feel that ‘the’ before ‘growth’ is not correct. Please comment.

    We believe that this disruption represents an opportunity for the growth and evolution for this company.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Yes; "growth" is very specific for this company, (note the words "this") so it is "the growth. "

    It also could have been:

    the welfare

    the future

    the downturn
