S&P, one of the world’s "Big Three" credit rating agencies, on Friday cited Poland's strong, balanced growth and better-than-projected budgetary outcomes since 2015.
It also noted that Poland’s public and external debt continued to decline as a percentage of gross domestic product.
Poland's Finance Minister Teresa Czerwińska has welcomed the upgrade, saying it reflected positive changes in the Polish economy under the country’s conservative government.
Standard & Poor’s in January 2016 lowered Poland's rating to BBB+ from A- and downgraded its outlook to "negative." That move sparked anger in Warsaw, with the Polish finance ministry calling the decision "incomprehensible."
