Bosnia: rating B/B affirmed, outlook stable

Political tensions will not impact on real economy

11 September, 20:54
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEPTEMBER 11 - Standard & Poor's Global Ratings affirmed its 'B/B' long- and short-term ratings on Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a stable outlook. S&P has noted that political tensions ahead and after the October elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina may raise concerns for "investments, foreign investor sentiment, and structural reform capacity." However, S&P noted, "we forecast the real economy will be largely unscathed over the coming two years, with a 3% annual growth rate through 2021 and steadily rising wealth levels." "Political tensions and divisive strategies will likely delay the forming of a functioning state parliament after the October elections," S&P added. (ANSA).
