Key Areas Offering Growth Potential
Kasteli Airport PPP tender;
Elliniko EUR7bn mixed used development;
TAP gas pipeline to enter construction in 2015;
European projects of common interest (PCI) in energy;
Ports privatisations - Thessaloniki and Piraeus;
We have factored in our forecasts the construction of the TAP natural gas pipeline and the construction of the Elliniko complex, though the later will extend beyond our forecast period.
We see further upside to our forecasts if the privatisations of the ports of Piraeus and Thessaloniki and the PPP for the EUR1.5bn Kasteli go through as planned over 2014. The European Projects of Common Interest for gas and electricity transmission projects are further upside for our energy and utilities sector.
The residential construction sector will remain depressed as activity and key indicators suggest further contraction ahead.

We have revised down our forecasts for 2014 real construction industry value growth from -10% to -15% on the back of a further 25% contraction in industry value in the first three months of 2014. We have however revised up our forecasts for 2015 onwards as we factor in major projects going into construction. Large scale privatisations of transport assets seems to be on the cusp of materialising after years of delays, which provide further upside to our transport forecasts.
