Fitch downgrades Guatemala's ratings
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Guatemala's long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings to BB from BB+.
Guatemala has not been able to make sufficient progress to materially enhance its growth prospects, widen its revenue base and improve its fiscal flexibility, Fitch said.
As a result, Guatemala's relative standing in the BB category has been eroded over the years.
