Dragon International Group in Agreement to Acquire Majority Stake in Wellton International Fiber Corp

NINGBO, CHINA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- Dragon International Group Corp. (OTCBB: DRGG), one of China's manufacturers and distributors of specialty paper products and packaging materials, announced today it has entered into a stock purchase agreement to acquire 51% of Wellton International Fiber Corp in an all stock transaction. Dragon International Group will issue restricted shares of its common stock based on the audited net tangible assets of Wellton, which will be issued upon completion of auditing at the closing. The transaction is expected to close by March 31, 2007. Dragon expects to issue shares not to exceed a value of US 1,500,000.

Wellton International Fiber Corp, formed in British Virgin Island and based in Hong Kong, is a leading importing firm of paper pulp in China. Wellton generated approximately US$18.5 million in revenues with over US$1 million in net income in 2006 on an un-audited basis.

Mr. David Wu, CEO and Chairman of Dragon International Group, stated, "One of our growth strategies is the external acquisition of businesses that are highly complementary to our own. We feel confident in our ability to merge the Wellton operations into our own and achieve synergies that will enhance both our operations. Our combined operations in 2006 would have totaled in excess of $35 million on a pro forma basis and we look forward to continued growth in both revenues and earnings in the coming years. We are excited to work with Wellton towards our goal of being China's leader in the production and distribution of specialty packaging. We believe we are well-positioned to grow our business substantially in an effort to enhance the value of our company for its shareholders."
