China's daily crude steel output falls sharply in early July-CISA data

SHANGHAI, July 17 (Reuters) - China's average daily crude
steel output declined sharply to 2.1 million tonnes in the first
10 days of July, down 4.5 percent from the preceding ten-day
period, the China Iron & Steel Association data showed on
Wednesday.    
    CISA estimated the country's total production based on its
members, including more than 70 large steel mills that account
for about 80 percent of China's total steel output.
    The decline of 4.5 percent was the steepest this year.
    CISA members produced 1.695 million tonnes of crude steel on
an average daily basis during the same period, down 3.8 percent
from a record high of 1.762 million tonnes in late June, the
data showed.      
    The following table shows changes in daily output since the
beginning of the year.
