Mayor Attends Eid al-Fitr Celebration in Taipei

Mayor Ko Wen-je attended the event commemorating Eid al-Fitr at Taipei Grand Mosque on July 6.
During his speech, the mayor greeted the audience and wished them a happy Eid al-Fitr. He remarked that Taiwan is considered one of the most Muslim-friendly nations in the world, noting that Taipei prides itself for being a diverse and multicultural city.
He hopes that Muslim friends can enjoy their stay in Taipei City. If they encounter any problems, they should contact the city government and see what can be done.
To celebrate the end of Ramadan, the Taipei Grand Mosque organized the Eid al-Fitr celebration on July 6 and invited the mayor to attend and address the crowd. Ko pointed out that with so many Muslim friends from around the world, Taipei City Government will do its best to ensure smooth day-to-day life for these individuals.
Responding to media questions regarding the emphasis of Muslims in city policies, the mayor remarked that there is a Muslim prayer area inside city hall – a facility which is still rare among local government agencies. Furthermore, the promotion campaigns drafted by the Department of Information and Tourism target three groups primarily: Japan and South Korea, ASEAN nations, and Muslim countries. There are more and more restaurants in Taipei obtaining Halal certification as well.
