image for Chinese banks cause alarm as capital flight measures intensify

EXCLUSIVE | Chinese nationals living abroad are growing concerned about long delays to access funds held in Chinese banks.

“Officially we have been told of no changes, but everyone is experiencing trouble [with Chinese banks] recently.”.

In the final quarter of 2022, China recorded net capital outflows of US$16.75 billion, according to data from the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.
