Credit ratings agency Standard & Poor’s has welcomed the Federal Government’s "fiscal prudence" in its May 2018 Budget. However, the firm has retained its negative outlook for Australia’s sovereign rating due to global factors such as the potential for an international trade war. Meanwhile, Jeremy Zook of Fitch Ratings says the Government’s revenue forecasts are "optimistic" and may affect its ability to deliver a surplus ahead of schedule.
