    Kimeng Tan, debt watcher Standard & Poor's senior director for sovereign ratings, Asia Pacific, answers questions during a Reuters interview in Manila May 3, 2012. Japan is in danger of slipping from its AA- credit rating if public debt continues to rise and if reforms are held up as its unpopular government struggles to get support for tax measures, S&P said on Thursday. Indonesia should impose financial sector reforms and the Philippines needs to reverse its weak revenues and continue to lower debt levels for both countries to get a ratings upgrade, said Tan.
