International partnerships are essential to advancing AAAS's mission around the world.  For example, one of AAAS's longest-standing international relationships is with the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) since 1978 before the normalization of diplomatic ties between the United States and the People's Republic of China.  In the first half of 2016, AAAS signed umbrella MOU's with the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) and the Korea Institute of S&T Evaluation and Planning (KISTEP) and expanded the liaison group of associations for the advancement of science to include the Japan Science & Technology Agency (JST) and the Korean Foundation for the Advancement of Science and Creativity (KOFAC) from the original founding organizations (AAAS, Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC), CAST, Euroscience, and the Indian Science Congress Association).
