The government has solicited credit ratings from three credit rating agencies: S&P Global Ratings, Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings. For long-term debt, they are AA+ (stable outlook), Aa1 (stable outlook) and AA+ respectively (positive outlook).
The State Treasury publishes, as a general rule, the decisions and possible reports of the rating agencies on a Monday following the rating decision.
