General U.S.-Taiwan Relations

The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) was established in 1979 by the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA), as a non-profit, private corporation with a mission to continue “commercial, cultural and other relations between the people of the United States and the people on Taiwan” and to assist Taiwan in maintaining its self-defense capability. Since 1979, AIT has played a central role as the United States and Taiwan have built the comprehensive, durable, and mutually beneficial partnership, which they enjoy today.

Taiwan remains a vital and reliable U.S. partner in Asia. Grounded by our mutual respect for open markets, democracy and human rights, these strong U.S.-Taiwan relations and stable cross-Strait relations are integral components of regional prosperity and stability. Whether promoting reciprocal trade and investment, or facilitating tourism and educational exchanges, or working together to maintain stable cross-Strait and regional security, AIT has diligently worked to strengthen and expand this relationship that is supported by three pillars: Shared Values, Shared Prosperity, and Shared Security.

This “AIT@40” exhibit celebrates our shared interests and values, and the role that AIT and its staff have played over the past four decades to foster these close economic, security, and people-to-people ties.
