    R&I (Rating and Investment Information), a Japanese credit rating agency, on Monday upgraded Greece's credit rating in foreign and domestic currency to B- with a stable outlook, from CC.

"The Greek economy finally reaches its lowest point. With a fiscal consolidation progressing as planned, a primary fiscal balance became positive. The public debt is huge compared with the Gross Domestic Product, but will possible begin falling in one or two years, combined with an improvement of the fiscal balance," R&I said, adding that the country's ability to repay its debt has increased.
