China will start a nationwide crackdown on money laundering from 2022 to 2024, after stepping up regulatory efforts in recent years. 

Eleven government agencies will carry out the campaign, which is aimed to “stop the spreading trend of money laundry and other related crimes,” the People’s Bank of China said in a statement Wednesday.
