Moody's expects no change to Australia's AAA rating

SYDNEY, March 9 (Reuters) - Ratings agency Moody’s Investor Service said on Thursday it expects no change to Australia’s AAA credit rating.

However, there might be a risk of a ratings downgrade if the government changed its commitment to reduce its persistent budget deficit, it added.

Rival S&P Global Ratings has repeatedly warned it could downgrade Australia’s credit rating after changing the country’s ratings outlook to negative last July. (Reporting by Cecile Lefort; Editing by Wayne Cole)
