whitelions: Standard & Poor's confirms Iraq's credit rating at B- / B http://s3.alraimedia.com/CMS/Attachments/2017/8/26/619630_441_-_Qu65_RT728x0-_OS747x441-_RD728x429-.jpg
Standard & Poor's on Friday confirmed Iraq's credit rating at B- / B with a stable outlook, but predicted a cut in oil production would affect economic growth in 2017.
The credit rating agency attributed a stable outlook to expectations of continued budget control efforts in the next few years. Standard & Poor's said the rating received support from Iraqi oil production being concentrated in areas under the firm control of the federal government. SOURCE
