Albert Ferreros del Rosario (born November 14, 1939) is the current Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines. On February 24, 2011, President Benigno Aquino III swore in del Rosario as his Secretary of Foreign Affairs replacing Alberto Romulo.
Before being appointed by Benigno Aquino III to the Foreign Affairs secretary post, del Rosario was the Philippine ambassador to the United States under then-President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from 2001 to 2006. He stepped down after disagreements with the Arroyo government.
He reportedly opposed the hiring of more lobby groups for the Philippine government and had cautioned the Arroyo government on its move to declare an emergency rule in 2006 following reported threats to national security. In 2008, he wrote that he could not defend the emergency rule to Washington since this was "unjustifiable."
President Benigno Aquino III administered del Rosario's oath at the Bahay Pangarap on February 24, 2011.
In May 2012, del Rosario called on the United States to supply the Philippines with "naval patrol vessels, aircraft, advanced radar systems, and coastal surveillance facilities" in order to maintain his nation's sovereignty against Chinese claims to the South China Sea.
