The people of the United States maintain cultural, commercial and other unofficial relations with the people on Taiwan.

Pursuant to section 6 of the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) (P.L. 96-8, 93 Stat. 14, 22 U.S.C. 3305) and The President Executive Order 13014-Maintaining Unofficial Relations With the People on Taiwan (Executive Order 13014, 61 F.R. 42963, PDF, 149 KB), programs, transactions, and other relations carried out by the President or any agency of the United States Government with respect to Taiwan are generally conducted and carried out by or through the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT). Similarly, U.S. agreements or transactions relative to Taiwan are generally entered into, performed, and enforced by or through AIT.

Pursuant to section 10(a) of the TRA, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO), formerly the Coordination Council for North American Affairs (CCNAA) has been determined to be the instrumentality established by the people on Taiwan having the necessary authority under the laws applied by the people on Taiwan to provide assurances and take other actions on behalf of Taiwan in accordance with the TRA (Executive Order 13014).

For agreements that were concluded with Taiwan authorities prior to January 1, 1979 and continue in force, see the United States Department of State publication Treaties in Force.

Selected Agreements entered into between AIT and TECRO (or its predecessor CCNAA) since January 1, 1979 are listed here.
