Do you mean this?

Eg.  If your data is in A2:B6, try in C2:

=SUMPRODUCT(--($B$2:$B$6=B2),--(A2>=$A$2:$A$6))

or

=COUNTIFS($B$2:$B$6,B2,$A$2:$A$6,"<="&A2)

copied down.

e.g.Min for "Asia" is 2, so in column C should be all 2 for Asia

so you mean...

=MIN(IF($B$2:B$6=$B2,A$2:A$6))

confirmed with CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER, not just ENTER and copied down.
