About US

01. History

The Taiwan (formerly Taipei) Foreign Correspondents’ Club was established in 1998 to assist foreign correspondents and their associates in Taiwan in news gathering by organising timely events, support and strengthen the correspondent community and represent their interests by giving them a voice in the community.

02. members

The TFCC includes members from all the major foreign news media based in Taipei. The club has about 100 members, about half of whom are correspondents for foreign news organisations, along with associate members including journalists from the local press and freelancers, trade office representatives, and others from the business community and government.

03. events

The club organises regular briefings and receptions with Taiwanese officials, politicians, business leaders, analysts and academics as well as purely social events for members and guests.

We host monthly happy hours for our members and friends. Join our community mailing list to receive notifications.
