ROME Jan 13 The decision by ratings agency DBRS
to cut Italy's sovereign credit rating will not have a
significant impact on the country's borrowing costs, a Treasury
a source said on Friday.
DBRS lowered Italy's rating to BBB (high) from A (low),
citing uncertainty over the country's ability to pass reforms,
continuing weakness in its banking system, and fragile growth.
The Treasury source, who asked not to be named, said the
move may affect yields on Italy's short term bonds but "will not
have a significant impact on our debt servicing costs."
