Although Taiwan is not a typical Muslim country, it is an open and multicultural society. Its Muslim population is about 50,000 people, which accounts for only 0.2% of its entire population. However, Muslims are by no means ignored. In addition, the majority of new immigrants and foreign workers are Muslims. Due to the increase of Muslim people coming to Taiwan in recent years, our government has started to align with the Islamic economy that has become a global trend.
