BEIJING — China’s securities watchdog toughened punishment on illegal market activities last year amid strengthened supervision, with total fines and administrative penalties reaching a three-year high.

A total of 10.641 billion yuan ($1.59 billion) of fines and confiscations were issued by the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) in 2018, up 42.28 percent year-on-year, Yan Qingmin, vice chairman of the CSRC, said at a meeting.
