China Direct Trading Corp. Receives Additional Purchase Order Commitment for 400 40kw Generators; Generator Orders Now Top $7,000,000

DAVIE, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 10, 2005 -- China Direct Trading Corporation (OTC BB: CHDT) ("China Direct"), 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."
