April 7 (Reuters) - Ratings agency Fitch on Tuesday changed Argentina’s long-term foreign currency rating to ‘CC’, a day after downgrading to ‘Restricted Default’.
The agency attributed the rating upgrade to unilateral re-profiling via executive decree of locally issued foreign currency debt instruments, which Fitch deemed as execution and completion of a distressed debt exchange.
