Credit Ratings

Standard & Poor’s AA+/Stable/A-1+

‘Queensland’s economy is very strong and supports its ratings. Its nominal Gross State Product (GSP) per capita of about $63,000 (US$62,600) between June 2012 and 2014 is high by international standards, and reflects the state’s wealthy and relatively diverse economy.’

Moody’s Investors Service Aa1/Negative/P1

‘Queensland’s credit quality reflects the state’s strong budget flexibility which it allows it to adjust revenues and expenditures as required to meet fiscal challenges.’

  • all of QTC’s obligations under all debt securities issued by QTC from time to time, and
