Chinese organized crime is unique because the diverse groups are different than criminal enterprises in Italy, Russia, and Japan. Unlike other country’s criminal networks, Chinese criminal organizations are not collectively known as the “Chinese Mafia,” but instead are mostly localized groups that can be referred to as triads, tongs, or street gangs.
