BEIJING -- China will require people making a single deposit or withdrawal that exceeds 50,000 yuan ($7,870) to report the source of such cash and how it will be used, part of a renewed clampdown on money laundering activities.

A similar restriction will apply to foreign currency transactions in the equivalent of more than $10,000, targeting unlawful capital outflows.
