The tournament was formerly known as the Intervarsity Chinese Debate Tournament, Singapore-Malaysia Open. It was organized by the NTU Chinese Society. The tournament was successfully held in year 2001 and year 2002. In year 2003, the NTU Chinese Society decided to expand the scale of the tournament to the Asia-Pacific level. Unfortunately, the tournament was held up by the threat of SARS in this region. Finally, the crisis blew over and we held our 1st Intervarsity Chinese Debate Tournament, Asia-Pacific Open was held in year 2004. In year 2006, NTU Chinese Society successfully held the 2nd Intervarsity Chinese Debate Tournament. After the success of the 2nd tournament, a group of Taiwanese debaters were interested in organizing the 3rd tournament and it was successfully held it in July 2007. Following that, the 4th and 5th tournament was also a big hit. There were a total of 56 teams registered in the 6th tournament.
