The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has asked the government of Luxembourg in Europe to accept Filipino accountants who want to work there.

"Foreign affairs secretary Albert del Rosario has asked Luxemborg to recognize Philippine-issued accounting degrees, noting that Filipino accountants are sought in many countries including the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia," DFA spokesman assistant secretary Raul

Hernandez told reporters Wednesday.

"There are about 30 Filipino accountants in Luxembourg, one of Europe's major financial centers," he said.

The request was conveyed by del Rosario to Luxembourg's deputy prime minister and foreign affairs minister Jean Asselborn during their meeting last Monday, Hernandez said.

Del Rosario had also met with European Council president Herman Van Rompuy in Brussels, Belgium who congratulated the DFA secretary for the 7.8-percent economic growth of the Philippines during the first quarter of 2013.

Europe is among the largest investors in the Philippines and its exports to the country increased by 20 percent in 2012, Rompuy cited.
