SYDNEY, May 9 (Reuters) - Australia's budget has no major impact on the country's triple A ratings with stable outlook, said ratings agency Fitch on Tuesday after the government unveiled its 2017/18 budget.
"The budget itself does not change our assessment made in September when we affirmed the country's triple A ratings," said Mervyn Tang, director, Asia-Pacific Sovereigns at Fitch.
He noted that the budget's new revenue measures implied a faster reduction in general government deficit than Fitch had projected in its September ratings review. (Reporting by Cecile Lefort; Editing by Simon Cameron-Moore)
