The Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States; (Chinese: 駐美國台北經濟文化代表處; pinyin: Zhù Měiguó Táiběi Jīngjì Wénhuà Dàibiǎo Chù) represents the interests of Taiwan in the United States in the absence of formal diplomatic relations, functioning as a de facto embassy. Its counterpart in Taiwan is the office of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) in Taipei.[1]

History[edit]

The mission serves as the office of the Coordination Council for North American Affairs (CCNAA) in Washington DC, established in 1979 as the counterpart to AIT, after the United States established diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China.[2] The council was renamed Taiwan Council for US Affairs in 2019.[3][4]

In 1994, as a result of the Clinton Administration's Taiwan Policy Review, the name of the CCNAA office in Washington, D.C. (which functioned as an embassy) was changed to Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office (TECRO).[5] Similarly, the names of the twelve other CCNAA offices (which functioned as consulates) were changed to Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO).[6]
