China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) has announced that during last week (May 11-17) the overall average finished steel price in China edged up slightly on week-on-week basis.

In the given week, the average prices of hot-rolled steel strip, rebar, high-speed wire rod and steel channel increased by 0.5 percent, 0.3 percent, 0.3 percent and 0.1 percent, respectively, week on week.
