– S&P is one of the three largest credit rating agencies in the world and their affirmation of the credit rating, which was announced today, is certainly a good signal that Macedonian policies are well set, including the debt level, rated as moderate, fiscal policy, monetary policy, banking sector, as well as improved unemployment conditions with unemployment being reduced, Stavreski stated at today’s visit of Probistip.
Macedonia, Stavreski underlined, has been affirmed its credit rating in conditions when it has been downgraded for other countries.
– In such relatively difficult times, when other countries, such as Croatia, Ukraine, etc, …. have been downgraded their credit rating, Republic of Macedonia has been affirmed its credit rating. We have maintained stable rating and it is a good signal for both the foreign investors and the domestic investors to rely on predictable and good working conditions, Stavreski said.
