TAITRA says over 300,000 came for treatment in 2017


These numbers differ from others recently published about Taiwan. An article in the The Jakarta Post suggests (without offering a source of their data) that the numbers arriving for medical treatment in 2017 and 2018 are closer to 100,000.

Numbers may differ because all who live in Taiwan and China are Chinese, which makes it hard to differentiate who is ‘local’ and who is defined as an ‘international medical tourist’).
