crude steel production for the final 10 days of November
increased 0.4 percent from the preceding 10 days, according to
estimates from the China Iron and Steel Association (Cisa).
Daily crude steel production
averaged 1.96 million tonnes in late November, up from 1.952
million tonnes in the second 10 days of the month.
Cisa members, including
state-owned and large steel mills, contributed an average daily
volume of 1.641 million tonnes during the period. Thats
up 0.5 percent in the same comparison.
"Though the fall in long product
prices in November gave some steel mills a hard time, firm
prices of flats offset the negative effect and encouraged steel
mills to produce more," an industry analyst in Beijing told
AMM sister publication Steel First.
Average daily crude steel production for November as a whole
totaled 1.956 million tonnes.
