In a surprise move, ratings agency Moody’s upgraded Greece‘s credit rating to B3 from Caa2, maintaining the positive outlook. Moody’s cited “material fiscal and institutional improvements” under the current adjustment programe, which will be sustained in the coming years. This should support economic recovery and banking sector.
Furthermore, Moody’s said in its upgrade report Greece‘s “‘clean’ exit will be supported in the near term by a substantial cash buffer and over the medium to long term by the strong commitment of Greece‘s euro area creditors to providing further debt relief.”
Moody’s upgrading has had positive reactions not only by the Greek government.
