Coming in second place, the United States, which housed about 10,000 new millionaires.
Fox Business says most headed to New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and the San Francisco Bay area.
Other millionaires went up north to Canada.
But religious tensions, taxes and crime rates made others pack their bags.
But China lost a bunch of big spenders in 2018, 15,000 of them.
