Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Several Central American countries face an increasing credit risk due to their external debt, according to a Standard & Poor's report.

The region's six countries have a 'BB' grade, placing them under the minimum investment grade of 'BBB-'.

However, each country's situation differs, according to the report. The sovereign debts of each country are "facing increasing credit risks" the report points out.
