CPAs Chosen by Seoul Government for Service
The government will select 750 public accountants, or 295 more than it selected in 2000. In fact, over the last five years, the number chosen has steadily increased, with the total as of of late September at 5,108.
To continue to meet the demand, the governmnet plans a 20 percent increase each year.
"The demand for quality accounting services is rising, as non-transparent firms are finding it hard to survive in the market," a ministry official explained.
