Moreover, Fitch Ratings on the 6th of August in 2018 reaffirmed Egypt's long-term foreign-currency issuer default rating at 'B' and maintained its outlook as positive after affirming earlier on the 16th of January in 2018 that Egypt's Long-Term Foreign- and Local-Currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) is revised to be positive from being Stable Outlook.
