Fitch APAC Chart: Credit Conditions Tightening in Emerging Asia

(The following statement was released by the rating agency) Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: APAC Sovereigns Chart of the Month: September 2014 here HONG KONG, September 30 (Fitch) : Higher real interest rates across many emerging markets (EM) in Asia point towards a less favourable liquidity environment for these sovereign credits, Fitch Ratings says in a report. Rate hikes have been implemented by authorities in many EM Asian sovereigns to limit the negative impact on their currencies when the US Federal Reserve completes the withdrawal of its quantitative easing. However, the tightening credit conditions highlight that growth-enhancing structural reforms would be constructive in maintaining the current growth momentum in EM Asia.
