BMI View:

  • Luxembourg will remain among the wealthiest economies globally over the next 10 years, but it will face growing political and economic challenges as it attempts to diversify away from an overreliance on its financial services sector.

The demand for data services bodes well for telecoms service providers in Moldova which are hard-pressed by the decline in basic voice service revenues.
