Economic growth is fueled by corporate fixed investments. In order for companies to set up new factories, production lines and hire people, there is a need of funds. These funds are provided by the banks or financial markets which play an intermediary role between those who need fund and those who have an excess of funds and place them in banks and/or financial markets.
If economic actors don't save sufficiently, this might constrain the amount of investments and therefore limit the economic growth
