Investors need to be watching China Direct Trading Corporation (OTC BB: CHDT) this AM! China Direct Trading is a global trading company engaged in the development and distribution of manufactured goods, mostly souvenir and gift items, to theme parks, importers and retailers worldwide. The company is a conduit between Asia and the US and is currently working with customers in industries such as textiles, automobiles, health technology, and other sectors! China Direct Trading has had several excellent news announcements out lately and one again before Monday's opening bell announcing that its generator purchase orders top $7,000,000! This could be great news for investors!

China Direct Trading Corporation (OTC BB: CHDT), a U.S.-Chinese trading company, today announced that, through its China Pathfinder Fund, LLC (CPF) subsidiary, it received an additional purchase order commitment for 400 40kw generators from Complete Power Solutions, LLC of Florida (CPS).

China Direct and CPS recently signed a five-year exclusive agency and distribution agreement, making CPS China Direct's exclusive distributor for generators in the Southeast and Northeast U.S. China Direct now has purchase order commitments for 900 generators over the next 12 months which, if all 900 generators result in consummated sales, then China Direct projects gross generator sales revenues of just over $7,000,000 in fiscal year 2006. China Direct expects to begin shipping generators within three to four months, after the generators receive a contractually required Universal Laboratory/UL approval. While UL approval is not assured, the Company is not aware of any reason that the Chinese-made generators would not qualify for UL approval. The 20kw to 50kw generators are designed to run an entire home or small business.

CPS, the exclusive supplier for Home Depot in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, Florida, is planning on expanding into the Northeast and Southeast U.S. over the next few months in anticipation of greater consumer demand for back-up energy sources.

Howard Ullman, CEO/President of China Direct, said, "We are very pleased to be supplying an established generator supplier in South Florida, who has recognized this strong local demand and is quickly morphing their business model into other high-demand generator markets, allowing increased market penetration based upon our competitive pricing structure. This is our purpose, to find demand and fulfill it from start to finish for our customers with quality, cost-efficient products from Asia."
