Greece   The outlook was kept positive
That was marking the first time S&P has upgraded the country's sovereign debt in two years. The outlook was kept positive, which implies another upgrade is likely. The sovereign bond rating is still 5 notches below investment grade.

"Greece's growth and fiscal outlooks have improved alongside a labor market recovery and amid a period of relative policy certainty," S&P said.
