BMI View: ---- will be a good year for Italy s freight sector as the upswing in domestic consumption will stimulate road freight growth and as exports of cars and pharmaceuticals will show more dynamism than observed in recent years, which will feed through into growth of rail and air freight. Over the medium term, we expect growth in Italy s freight sector to slow down considerably as economic growth will be muted and exports will face strong competitiveness issues. ...Over our forecast period (---------), we expect the economy to grow on average by relatively weak -.- measured in real terms.
