    LONDON -- Forecasters have raised their expectations for European car sales 
    in 1997, mainly because Italian scrapping incentives are successful. 
     
    The new incentives will have a bigger effect than similar subsidies in 
    France because entry-level small cars are more important in Italy, said GM 
    Europe economist Paul Holtgreive. 
     
    "It's like a 20 percent price cut on 80 percent of the market," said 
    Holtgreive, speaking at a conference in London, organized by consultant 
    J.D. Power-LMC. 
     
    He predicted that the Italian market will grow by at least 18 percent this 
    year.        (. . .)
