CEECA is composed of highly regarded entities, including many reputable associations, banks, and businesses that have received recognition for their excellent trade performance. It links up with TAITRA to form the largest and most comprehensive trade database in Taiwan, thus allowing businesspeople to enjoy the most effective and reliable assistance and services.

1. To assist members in exploring possible business opportunities in the Central, Eastern Europe and CIS countries,
2. organize trade and investment missions,
3. collect and disseminate trade information,
4. strengthen relations among members, clients and associations,

6. promote personnel exchanges and foreign relations between Taiwan and the Central, Eastern Europe and CIS regions, and
