Government of Colombia Baa2 stable: Annual credit analysis - Issuer In-Depth – 2022/06/30 – US$ 750.00 – ...The credit profile of Colombia balances a moderately sized and resilient economy, a history of predictable macroeconomic policies and a solid track record of servicing debt against relatively high commodity dependence, a comparatively narrow revenue base and an inflexible expenditure structure. Fiscal strength deteriorated in 2020 because of the pandemic shock, putting Colombia in a weaker position than several of its Baa-rated peers. Colombia's favorable debt structure is a credit strength, which mitigates the risks stemming from a higher government debt burden. However, in the absence of significant fiscal consolidation in the coming years, government debt metrics are unlikely to improve significantly over the medium term, resulting in a weaker fiscal profile than that of peers with Baa2 ratings. We expect that fiscal and economic dynamics will support debt stabilization over the coming years. A key assumption is the continuation of prudent macroeconomic policies by the next government,...

Government of Colombia: FAQ on fiscal and economic outlook, and upcoming elections - Issuer In-Depth – 2021/11/11 – US$ 750.00 – ...In September, following a considerable pandemic-driven deterioration in government finances, Colombia (Baa2 stable) passed an important fiscal reform, demonstrating its institutional capacity to implement macroeconomic policies that increase the likelihood of debt stabilization by 2023 and form the basis of a credible medium-term fiscal consolidation process. + How does passage of the fiscal reform affect the sovereign credit profile? Approval of fiscal reform confirms our view of Colombia's institutional strength. Through a consensus-building process, the government succeeded in promoting policies that support an economic recovery from a severe shock. Although the reform did not address all of the structural challenges that affect government finances, the measures meaningfully increase the likelihood that debt metrics will stabilize by 2023 and form the basis of a credible medium-term fiscal consolidation process. + What is Moody's assessment of Colombia's fiscal strength compared with...
