BEIJING, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Major Chinese industrial firms saw their combined profits rise 11.6 percent year on year in July, quickening from the 6.3-percent rate seen in June that points to further evidence of a firming economy, official data showed on Tuesday.

The profits of industrial companies with annual revenues of more than 20 million yuan (3.24 million U.S. dollars) hit 419.55 billion yuan in July, the National Bureau of Statistics said in a statement.

In the first seven months, their profits rose 11.1 percent to 3.0 trillion yuan.
