Summary

Table of Contents

The report covers info as of July 29.



The risks of fiscal slippage and external balance deterioration, triggered by the fiscal innovations enacted last year and in 2016, have to materialised to some extent. The GDP expanded by 4.3% y/y in Q1, but the budget deficit risks exceeding 3% of GDP this year and the 12-months imports are rising at a rate that is double the growth of exports. The C/A balance already hit 1.5% of GDP in Jan-May - indeed partly due to the weak inflows from the EU budget, but also due to the deterioration of the trade with goods.



To reflect the developments, Fitch has affirmed Romania's long-term foreign currency (LTFC) rating at BBB-, but downgraded country's long term local currency (LTLC) rating to BBB- from BBB, the international rating agency said on July 22. The downgrade was made because Romania's public finance fundamentals are no longer stronger relative to the external finance fundamentals.
