Creation of the AssociationSince the government of the Republic of China and Japan severed their diplomatic relations in 1972, non-governmental agencies were established to handle the matters concerning the interests of the two countries. While the Japanese formed the Interchange Association (ICA), a corporate institute under Japanese law, the Republic of China created the Association of East Asian Relations (AEAR), which is the charter approved by the Ministry of the Interior as ICA`s counterpart to maintain substantive relations. These two agencies have functioned as the channel of negotiation and coordination between the two countries. On December 26 of the same year, the AEAR and the ICA concluded an agreement for allowing both parties to establish their respective liaison offices in the territory of the other country.
