Chinese steel producers will suffer even bigger losses in August, following a 1.9 billion yuan ($299 million) loss last month due to falling prices, a senior official of industry group the China Iron and Steel Association (CISA) said on Thursday.

"China's steel sector is facing the most difficult times. Chinese steel mills will suffer deeper losses in August after losses of 1.9 billion yuan in July," CISA Vice-Chairman Wang Xiaoqi told an industry conference in Suzhou.
