    BMI View: Although we hold a positive view on Turkey's Consumer Electronics Market's long-term growth outlook, our real GDP forecasts reflect a downside in the next few years. This is the result of less abundant foreign capital inflows and slowing domestic credit growth, both key drivers of Turkey's economy. Despite an expected short-term moderation therefore, Turkey's consumer electronics market is well positioned to outperform most other emerging Europe markets. Demand is expected to increase ......

    BMI View: The Greek telecommunications sector appears poised for a significant overhaul as Vodafone sees an opportunity to intensify its competitive assault on the dominant provider, OTE. OTE has taken steps to fend off the rising competition, making an acquisition bid for wireline operator Forthnet's pay-TV business in July 2014, only to see traditional rivals WIND and Vodafone pool their minority shares, together adding up to nearly 40%, in order to thwart OTE's plans. In the meantime, Vodafon......
