China Direct Trading Corp. Initiates Roof Tile Sales for First Quarter Delivery

Twenty Million Tiles Available for 2006

COOPER CITY, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 22, 2005 -- China Direct Trading Corporation (OTC BB: CHDT), a U.S.-Chinese trading company, today announced through it's subsidiary China Pathfinder Fund, LLC (CPF) it has begun taking roof tile orders for delivery in the first quarter of 2006. The company is currently in the middle of testing the tiles with IRT, one of the top inspection firms in South Florida and testing is expected to be finished by the first week of December. The final report will then be submitted to Dade County Code Compliance Department for approval for sales.

CPF has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with China Minnan Ceramic Company (CMCC), located in Fujian, China. The factory has been in operation since 1986 producing high quality tiles from roof to floor with 15% of its annual production going to export. The factory has 90 new machines imported from Spain and Italy producing their famous Chinese Brand known as Minnan. The ISO9001 rated factory has 1,256 workers in a 200,000 square meter facility.

Total annual production for 2006 is twenty million tiles until CMCC can expand its production facility during the first two quarters of 2006. The factory is working to double its production capacity by the middle of 2006.

"Reaction to the Tiles has been astounding," said Jerry Rickman, salesman for CPF. Every roofing company and wholesaler I have presented our tiles to is interested in purchasing them as soon as we receive Dade County Code approval.
