Moody's Raises Greece's Credit Rating to B1 from B3 with Stable Outlook

Moody’s Investors Service raised on Friday 1 March 2019 Greece’s sovereign credit rating to B1’ from ‘B3 and assigned a stable outlook, citing as three key drivers behind the upgrade
 - the maturing reform programme
 - a now firmly established track record of strong fiscal performance, 
 - public debt sustainability over the medium term enhanced by last June's debt relief package.
Commenting this development, Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos posted on his  twitter account "Only a few hours after Mr. Staikouras' (Christos, main opposition New Democracy's shadow finance minister) remark that all the international reports confirm New Democracy's criticism, Moody's upgrades the Greek economy by two notches. Maybe the timing is neither ND’s nor Staikouras' strongest card.
