Indonesia Fails to Win Full Investment Grade

Indonesia Fails to Win Full Investment Grade

Indonesia will need to wait longer for its full investment grade after S&P Global Ratings maintained its junk status, an assessment that the country’s finance minister sees as “not appropriate.” S&P confirmed the country’s BB+ rating. Fitch Ratings and Moody’s Investors Service have already awarded Indonesia investment grade status more than four years ago.
