COOPER CITY, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 13, 2006 -- China Direct Trading Corporation (OTCBB: CHDT), a U.S.-Chinese trading company, today announced that its Overseas Building Supply (OBS) subsidiary will be showcasing the company's China-manufactured roof tiles and propane generators at the 2007 International Builders Show in Orlando, February 7-10, 2007.

The International Builders Show (IBS) is the most successful and well-attended annual convention of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), with more than 105,000 housing professionals attending in 2006. IBS is also one of the biggest annual conventions in the U.S., occupying almost one million square feet of the Orange County Convention Center in 2006 with exhibits showcasing the most innovative products and services aimed specifically at the residential and light commercial construction industries.

OBS will also be showing their new 6000-Watt propane-powered generators at IBS, as well as China Direct subsidiary Complete Power Solutions' proprietary pre-engineered concrete generator installation pads. The pads are designed to reduce noise, minimize vibration (STC Rating of 48), are one third the weight of normal concrete and eliminate the delay inherent in pad pouring and inspection.
