Here’s a bit about Chinese population overseas (people either born in China or of Chinese descent)

During the colonial 19th century, there was a strong demand for workers and labourers in South America, South-east Asia and other parts of the world. The Chinese, then under the Qing Dynasty, were forced to move with these colonial powers. Most Chinese preferred South east Asia (No wonder Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia have the highest Chinese populations) and the some moved to Peru, United States and Canada.

Except for China, Singapore is the only country with a majority Chinese population.

Chinese overseas population:

1. Singapore
2. Indonesia
3. Thailand
4. Malaysia
5. USA
6. Canada
7. Peru
8. Vietnam
9. Philippines
10. Burma

Thanks for taking the time to research then post your findings for those of us with slower computers, children barking at ya, and not enough hours in the day.

This is fun. Thanks for the answers. I know you supposedly don’t need to be correct, but it is more fun that way.
