ROME, March 27 Fri Mar 27, 2009 12:08pm EDT

ROME, March 27 (Reuters) - Italy's new car orders will show double-digit growth in March, the head of foreign car makers' association Unrae said on Friday, as government incentives kick in to boost demand.

"Orders in March will certainly have double-digit growth over last year," Unrae Secretary-General Gianni Filipponi said on the sidelines of a meeting. He added that car sales in the month should at least match March 2008 levels, echoing comments from research body Promotor on Thursday. [ID:nLQ474671] Italy publishes official figures for March car sales on April 1.
