Senegal - Credit Rating at 35.00


S&P Global Ratings changed its outlook on Senegal's "B+" rating to positive from stable on June 15th 2018. The decision mainly reflected the agency's expectation that Senegal's real GDP growth will remain strong at 7% per year in 2018-2021, and that the government is committed both to lowering the fiscal deficit toward 3.0% of GDP next year and to reducing below-the-line financing, respecting the criterion established by the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). It was also noted that the country benefits from political and monetary stability. By 2022-2024, S&P believes that Senegal could shift from being a net importer to a net exporter of energy, also improving budgetary performance and that foreign investment could rise. Moody's credit rating for Senegal was last set at Ba3 with stable outlook.
