Fitch confirms Slovenia’s credit rating
On 5 May 2023, the Fitch agency affirmed Slovenia's A credit rating with a stable outlook.
Slovenia's credit rating is positively influenced by the state’s successful management and social stability, the reduction of public debt as a share of gross domestic product, and a credible policy framework linked to membership in the European Union and the euro area.
Fitch forecasts 1.4 percent economic growth for Slovenia this year; the public debt is expected to decrease from last year's 69.9 percent to 66.7 percent in 2024. According to Fitch, strong liquidity buffers enable flexibility in financing the state budget. Fitch forecasts that the Slovenian balance of payments, the current account, will show a surplus this year and in 2024.
