S&P Global Ratings has reaffirmed its long and short-term foreign and local currency sovereign credit ratings on Bulgaria at BBB/A2-, and kept a stable outlook.

The slow pace of vaccine rollout and the potential new outbreak of Covid-19 could lead to a weaker than expected recovery of external demand. The contraction of Bulgaria’s economy has been relatively weak, which is mainly due to the sustainable domestic demand. In the medium term (until 2024), the large flow of EU funds will provide a solid opportunity for economic growth. Despite the challenging domestic political environment and the Covid-19 pandemic, Bulgaria has maintained a strong fiscal position, reads the analysis.
