USCPFA Mission: Statement of Principles

Trilingual Statement of Principles (pdf)

USCPFA is a nonprofit educational organization. Our goal is to build active and lasting friendship based on mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of China.

We recognize that friendship between our two peoples must be based on the knowledge of and respect for the sovereignty of each country; therefore, we respect the declaration by the United States of America and the People's Republic of China that the resolution of the status of Taiwan is the internal affair of the Chinese on both sides of the Taiwan Straits.

We also recognize that friendship between our peoples and good relations between our two governments plays a critical role in maintaining peace in the Pacific Basin and in the world.

As an educational organization, our activities include sponsoring speakers and programs which inform the American people about China, organizing tours and special study groups to China, publishing newsletters and other literature, promoting friendship with Chinese students and scholars while in the United States, and promoting cultural, commercial, technical, and educational exchanges.

Everyone is invited to participate in our activities and anyone who agrees with the Statement of Principles is welcome to join.
