The table below ranks Asian countries on the basis of the number of billionaires.

If we add the Chinese and HK numbers,China truly has beaten India hands down.The only twist in the tale is that India remains home to the region’s wealthiest individuals. Ten of Asia’s top 25 billionaires are from India.The wealthiest 100 Indians are collectively worth $276 billion, while their top 100 Chinese counterparts are worth $170 billion. (Put another way, the three wealthiest Indians have more cash than the top 24 Chinese.)
