Fitch Ratings has affirmed Lithuania's long-term credit rating at A with a stable outlook, informs LETA/BNS.

"This reaffirms that, internationally, Lithuania is considered a very reliable and responsible state whose decisions are trusted," Finance Minister Vilius Sapoka said in a press release.

 

Fitch Ratings said the sable outlook reflects "a degree of economic resilience to the COVID-19 pandemic owing to an improvement in external finances (...), a stable banking sector and a track record of fiscal prudence". 


The international credit rating agency upgraded Lithuania's rating to A, from A-, last January.
