Yiwu hosts China’s growing Muslim community, as well as massive mall

Posted by

Finishing touches have just been made on a 25 million yuan (approximately $4 million) mosque that’s being used by Yiwu’s estimated 35,000 Muslims, one third of whom can be found at the religious center during its busiest prayer periods.

NBC Producer Aarne Heikkila recently traveled to Yiwu, China, a city renowned for its 70,000 wholesale vendors selling everything from plastic figurines to rubber bands, jewelry to exercise books.

Recently trade between China and the Arab world, in particular, has been booming. The city is home to what is said to be one of the fastest growing Muslim communities in mainland China.
