The Hungarian Minister of Finance Mihály Varga called the decision of Fitch Ratings „good news for the weekend”. He reminded that Moody's upgraded Hungary last September, so after last decade Hungary got to be recommended for investment by all three major credit rating agencies even after a crisis. „Today, not only investors but also credit rating agencies trust the Hungarian economy” – he said on his community page.
