S&P has maintained Thailand’s credit rating at BBB+ with a stable outlook. This decision is based on the country’s strong external balance sheet, moderate government debt, and traditional fiscal and monetary policies. The ratings reflect confidence in Thailand’s financial stability and responsible governance.
Maintaining a BBB+ credit rating indicates that Thailand is considered to have a moderate risk of defaulting on its obligations. This rating is supported by the country’s strong external balance sheet, which helps to mitigate risks. Additionally, Thailand’s moderate government debt and conventional fiscal and monetary policies also contribute to its overall creditworthiness.
The stable outlook suggests that S&P does not anticipate any significant changes to Thailand’s credit rating in the near future. This reflects confidence in Thailand’s ability to maintain its strong external balance sheet, manage its government debt, and continue to implement responsible fiscal and monetary policies.
