Moody’s: Turkey downgrade review hinges on new cabinets policies

Credit rating agency Moody’s said on June 26 that a review on a possible downgrade of Turkey’s sovereign credit rating will hinge on what policies the country’s government pursues following President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s election victory this week.

Turkey’s rating review announced earlier in June will focus on the incoming government’s capacity and intention to implement policies that would promote sustainable growth and protect the government’s fiscal strength,” Moody’s said in a statement.

“Such policies will be key to restoring confidence in the economy and provide greater assurance of Turkey’s ability to obtain the requisite funding for its large current account deficit and to meet its external repayment requirements,” it added.
