Islam in Taiwan

Islam is a relatively slow growing religion in Taiwan, around 100 new converts each year. However, lately its growth has been more or less rapid thanks to immigrants from Indonesia . 

Currently there are around 53,000 Taiwanese Chinese who are Muslim and more than 80,000 Indonesian Muslims who work (TKI) in Taiwan. Until now (in 2007) there were around 140,000 Muslims in Taiwan.
