China daily steel output dips 2 pct in mid-Sept -CISA

SHANGHAI, Sept 26 (Reuters) - China's average daily crude
steel output fell 2.01 percent to 1.857 million tonnes between
Sept 11-20 from the preceding 10 days, data from the China Iron
& Steel Association (CISA) showed on Wednesday, as steel mills
trimmed output amid poor demand. 
   Daily production was 1.895 million tonnes on average during 
the Sept 1-10 period.
   CISA estimated the country's total production based on its
members, which comprise more than 70 large steel mills that
account for about 80 percent of China's total steel output.
