SINGAPORE, Sept 28 (Reuters) - London copper rose for a second straight session on Monday on expectations of a strong demand in top importer China and a U.S. stimulus in the works.


* Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange rose 0.3% to $6,565 a tonne, as of 0138 GMT and the most-traded copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange added 0.6% to 50,860 yuan ($7,455.29) a tonne.

* In August, data showed industrial output in China, the world's top consumer of metals, accelerated the most in eight months.

* Democrats in the House of Representatives are working on a $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package.

* Still, a higher U.S. dollar, which makes greenback-priced commodities more expensive for holders of other currencies, could weigh on prices.

* The dollar hovered near a two-month peak against a basket of currencies on Monday as investors look to a barrage of upcoming economic data and political developments in the United States before making any fresh bets on the U.S. currency.

* Zambia will remove import duty on copper ores and concentrates to encourage local processing, Finance Minister Bwalya Ng'andu said in a budget speech delivered in parliament on Friday.

* Africa's second largest copper producer saw its export earnings from the metal in the first half of the year fall 14.8% to $2.3 billion due to a drop in prices, he added.

* Asian shares were on the defensive, while oil prices edged lower on Monday as investors were cautious ahead of a U.S. Presidential debate and as coronavirus cases spike again in a blow to global economic recovery hopes.
