AAP logoAAP 19/12/2016

Ratings agency Moody's says the latest economic update from the federal government is consistent with maintaining a triple-A rating on the Australian economy.

Moody's says the downward revisions for economic growth in the mid-year economic and fiscal outlook (MYEFO) on Monday are now in line with its own forecasts.

Despite expecting budget deficits to be larger and longer-lasting than forecast in MYEFO, Moody's said the ability of the economy's resilience and the "vigilence" of policymakers would maintain Australia's triple-A credit rating.
