Vietnam’s credit rating improved

Fitch Ratings has increased Vietnam’s long-term foreign-currency issuer default rating to BB

Based on good results coming from rising foreign-exchange reserves and strong economic growth, Fitch Ratings, one of the world’s three biggest credit rating agencies, has risen Vietnam’s credit rating. According to Bloomberg: “The rating on the nation’s long-term, foreign currency-denominated debt was raised one level to BB, with a stable outlook”.

In addition, according to the recent positive socio-economic results, such as reforming state-owned enterprises, containing debt, strong foreign-investment levels and thriving manufacturing sector, Fitch is forecasting Vietnam’s GDP growth at 6.7% for 2018 (a similar result to 2017). This will allow Vietnam to remain one of the fastest-growing country in Asia-Pacific region in 2018.
