Fiscal woes take Europeans to the Philippines

    As the Eurozone crisis continues, many Europeans are now looking for opportunities in emerging economies such as the Philippines.

    From countries such as Spain, where the jobless rate has hit 25 percent, skilled workers are heading to the Philippines, where according to government figures, the economy grew by seven percent last year.
