Lusa - Business News - Angola: S&P downgrades economic outlook to negative, cites 'significant' debt




London, Feb. 11 (Lusa) – Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's (S&P) has downgraded its outlook for Angola’s economy from stable to negative, citing a "significant increase" in public debt, and kept its sovereign credit rating as ‘junk’.
Angola's public debt as a percentage of gross domestic product increased significantly in 2018, partly due to the impact of the strong depreciation of the kwanza on the volume of public debt in foreign currency, the note accompanying the announcement states.
It said that S&P was revising its forecast for the outlook for the economy from stable to negative and holding the rating of long- and short-term sovereign debt at B- and B respectively.
The negative forecast reflects the possibility of a cut in the rating if the weight of public debt makes financing needs unsustainable, or if budgetary or external pressures lead to more prolonged twin deficits (budgetary and trade) that predicted, the analysts write.
Between 2015 and 2018, S&P noted, Angola’s stock of public debt in proportion to GDP increased by about 40 percentage points, from 45% to 87%.
It also said that Angola’s economy must have shrunk by about 1% last year, but that this year it should expand by 2%.
