  • Post category:Petition

Support the “Taiwan Representative Office Act” (H.R.3171 & S.1513) to direct the Secretary of State to seek to enter into negotiations with the “Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office” (TECRO) to rename its office to the “Taiwan Representative Office” (TRO)!

H.R.3171

S.1513


What Does This Bill Do?

  • The Act calls to rename Taiwan’s de facto embassy in the United States from the “Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office” (TECRO) to the “Taiwan Representative Office” (TRO).
  • This Act provides that it shall be the U.S. policy, consistent with the “Taiwan Relations Act” and the “Six Assurances,” to provide the people of Taiwan with “de facto diplomatic treatment” equivalent to foreign countries, nations, states, governments, or similar entities.
  • Taiwan’s de facto embassy in the U.S. represents not just the city of “Taipei,” but the independent country of “Taiwan” as a whole. The current title of the office does not reflect the national identity and dignity of Taiwan.
  • Referring to Taiwan as “Taiwan” is consistent with longstanding U.S. policy. We therefore have the “TAIWAN Relations Act,” “TAIWAN Travel Act,” etc., and an “American Institute in TAIWAN” (AIT).
  • If a “Taiwan Representative Office” could sit in Washington D.C., it would be a powerful support to our longtime friend and democratic ally, Taiwan, to counter China’s increasing aggression. It could also encourage our other allies to join the U.S.-led effort and make “Taiwan” representative offices “a new normal” across the world.
