Global Trade Magazine on 8 July carried an article saying that China produces some 90 percent of the world’s fireworks. Around 60 percent of those are made in Liuyang. It says that Nearly all the fireworks US consumers purchase came from China – about $296.2 million worth – this being about half of the total Chinese output. However, the Washington Post has reported that around 70% of all Chinese fireworks entering the US are produced, warehoused, transported, and ultimately imported under the control of companies owned by just one Chinese businessman and his companies have imported 7,400 containers into the US so far this year, averaging around 72 per day.
