Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Spain

In March 1973, the diplomatic relationship between the Republic of China (Taiwan) and Spain was suspended and in August of that same year, our Government set up the Sun Yat-Sen Centre in Madrid, to maintain and develop bilateral relations in 1993 its name was changed to the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office. Since then, we have been promoting all kinds of activities between both countries.
