SABC News Moodys Reuters - Moody’s expected to review SA credit rating

Moody’s is on Friday expected to review South Africa’s credit rating, taking into account the growth prospects of the economy.

Moody’s has forecast economic growth of 1.3% for this year and 1.5% for 2020, lower than the Treasury’s growth projection of 1.5 and 1.7%.

Moody’s is the only credit ratings agency who hasn’t yet downgraded South Africa’s credit rating to sub-investment grade, or junk status.

Standard & Poor’s and Fitch have rated South Africa below investment grade since 2017.

A Reuters poll of economists expects Moody’s to cut South Africa’s credit outlook to negative from stable but keep the credit rating one notch above sub-investment grade.

The decision is expected after the close of the JSE.
