Standard & Poor's improves Slovak debt outlook rating

International ratings agency Standard & Poor's changed its rating outlook for Slovakia's domestic and foreign currency long-term debt to "stable" from "negative" on November 15, but left the ratings themselves unchanged at BBB+ and BB+, respectively. With the Slovak ratings upgrade announced at the end of October by Moody's Investor Service, Standard & Poor's becomes the second international rating agency this year to improve Slovakia's foreign debt rating outlook.
