Ratings Agency Fitch on Thursday upgraded Jamaica's long-term foreign-currency issuer and local currency issuer default rating to 'B+' from 'B'.
The rating agency also revised its outlook to "Stable" from "Positive".
Additionally, Fitch upgraded the country ceiling to 'BB-' 'from 'B'.
This is Jamaica's highest rating in over ten years.
In a statement, Fitch said the upgrade reflects a track record of large primary surpluses that have cut general government debt/Gross Domestic Product (GDP) significantly.
