Fitch upgrades Greece by one notch to 'B'

Feb 16 (Reuters) - Fitch Ratings raised Greece's sovereign credit rating by one notch on Friday and said general government debt sustainability would improve on sustained economic growth and reduced political risks.

The ratings agency upgraded Greece's long-term foreign-currency issuer default rating to 'B' from 'B-' and kept its outlook positive.

Greece's track record of general government primary surpluses and additional fiscal measures legislated to take effect through 2020 will also help the credit profile of the debt-laden south-eastern European nation, Fitch said.

S&P Global Ratings upgraded Greece's sovereign credit rating to 'B' from 'B-' in January.
