China April steel output up 4.9 per cent, hits record: stats bureau

China's steel output rose 4.9 per cent in April to a record 72.78 million tonnes, data showed on Monday, as mills in the world's top producer churn out more metal to profit from rising prices, even as Beijing aims to curb excess capacity.

April's total surpassed March's monthly record of 72 million tonnes, stocking worries of a growing glut as demand remains flat.

In the first four months, production totalled 273.9 million tonnes, up 4.6 per cent from the same period a year earlier, the data showed.
