D&B puts Serbia among moderate-risk countries

Serbia has moved upward from the category of high-risk countries into the category of moderate-risk countries according to the latest analysis prepared by the Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) credit rating agency.

The improvement in Serbia's rating was ascribed to many positive economic trends and to the political stability, according to this agency whose findings were published by media in Belgrade on Friday.

Other countries in the region that are also in the moderate-risk category are Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Macedonia, Albania, Italy, Cyprus, Portugal and Turkey.
