The German-Taiwanese Association (Deutsch-Taiwanische Gesellschaft – DTG according to its initials in German) was founded in 1957 and is the oldest society in Germany advancing ties to Taiwan (Republic of China), with both German and Taiwanese members. The DTG was originally made up of members of the German parliament (Bundestag), who were eager for long-term development of German-Taiwanese relations. Since then, the DTG has united German and Taiwanese citizens through culture, economics, science and politics.
The chairperson and board of the DTG act on a voluntary basis. They have advanced friendship among Germans and Taiwanese for years, and work to cultivate friendly relations between Germany and Taiwan.
According to the DTG charter, the association’s purpose is to develop understanding and tolerance for the Far East in Germany. Furthermore, DTG advocates for the continuance, care and strengthening of the multifaceted relationship between Germany and Taiwan. This includes promotion and increase of cultural exchanges between Taiwan and Germany, development of economic relationships, and support for tourist relations between the two countries.
In 1989, the DTG established the Parliamentarian Friends Berlin-Taipei, which has been formed after every national election since then. The group includes parliamentarians of all parties and has all the rights of an official parliamentarian group.
Members of the DTG receive regular information and invitations to economic forums, cultural events, lectures and receptions.
