Standard and Poor's (S&P), a credit ratings agency, on Tuesday hiked its assessment of Argentina one notch to B, citing an improvement in the country's debt levels.
Sebastian Briozzo, a credit analyst at S&P, one of the so-called "big three" credit rating agencies, said the improved assessment had augured as a result of the "strong economic recovery in 2010, supported by favourable external conditions that are expected to persist over the medium term."
