May 25th is Day of the Public Accountant in Mexico

For many years this date has been considered as the starting point for the activities of accountants in Mexico, because precisely on May 25, but in 1907, Mr. Fernando Diez Barroso took the first professional exam with which he graduated as Accountant of Trade. On December 20, 1925, the Ministry of Public Education revalidated the degree obtained by Don Fernando by granting him the first title of Public Accountant.
