NANNING — Exports of Luosifen, an iconic delicacy known for its pungent smell in the southern Chinese city of Liuzhou, registered soaring growth in July, with a total value of 7.85 million yuan (about $1.1 million), data from Liuzhou customs showed.
The export value of Luosifen in a single month of July exceeded the total value of 7.5 million yuan in the first six months.
