Moody’s Investors Service, an international credit rating agency, announced yesterday that it has confirmed the Macau SAR’s long-term issuer ratings at “Aa3” with a “stable” rating outlook. It said the rating was in part based on the SAR government’s strong fiscal and external positions and further progress on economic diversification. Moody’s points out that the solid fiscal and external buffers will continue to offer Macau the capacity to withstand potential market shocks. Meanwhile, the rating agency expects Macau’s economy to grow moderately as the government’s economic diversification policies mature. “Aa3” is three notches lower than the highest rating. According to Moody’s rating definitions, ratings in the “Aa” category are high investment grade and are subject to very low credit risk.
