Updated : June 14, 2018 12:28 PM IST

The increased output comes despite China's efforts to limit production in key areas as part of its anti-pollution campaign and highlights Beijing's challenge in tackling overcapacity in the world's top steel producer.
China produced 81.13 million tonnes of crude steel last month, up 5.8 percent from the previous month and 8.9 percent from the same month last year, according to data from the National Bureau of Statistics.
