Standard & Poor’s affirms Iceland’s sovereign ratings at BBB+/A-2 with a stable outlook

International rating agency Standard & Poor’s has affirmed Iceland’s sovereign ratings at BBB+/A-2 with a stable outlook. Standard & Poor’s expects economic growth in Iceland to remain strong over the next few years, supported by the tourism sector and robust private consumption. The stable outlook balances the potential for a faster-than-anticipated improvement in the country’s fiscal and balance-of-payments profiles over the next two years against the remaining risks surrounding capital control liberalization and the prospect of the economy overheating.
