Rwanda Moody’s lowers the country’s outlook from “stable” to “negative”

Credit rating agency Moody’s announced on October 13, 2020 that it had lowered Rwanda’s outlook from “stable” to “negative”, and confirmed the long-term issuer’s rating to “B2”. For the agency, this “negative rating” is justified by the risks generated by the coronavirus pandemic. The Covid-19 is indeed expected to have a lasting effect on certain sectors of the country’s economy, particularly transport and tourism, which will potentially reduce the return on previous public investments.
