NEW MEASURE: Finance Minister Colm Imbert

FINANCE Minister Colm Imbert says T&T has received a “favourable” rating from the US credit rating agency Fitch Ratings.

Imbert made the comment during yesterday’s Standing Finance Committee examination of the 2020 budget. In August 2018, Government engaged Fitch to do a rating of the T&T’s economy. At that time, the Ministry of Finance said Fitch would review this country’s sovereign debt ratings, provide an initial/indicative rating and monitored rating of T&T for the period May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2022.
