Global ratings firm Fitch has maintained its sovereign credit rating for Korea at "AA-," the fourth highest on its scale.
The agency said Tuesday that Korea has a "stable" outlook, citing its "robust external finances, steady macroeconomic performance, and a record of sound fiscal management," which balance downside risks such as "evolving geopolitical risks, medium-term structural challenges from [aging] demographics and low productivity."
The rating has been unchanged since 2012.
