Overseas Building Supply Reports on 2007 International Builders' Show

COOPER CITY, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 15, 2007 -- China Direct Trading Corporation (OTCBB: CHDT) subsidiary Overseas Building Supply (OBS) today reported on results from exhibiting at the 2007 International Builders' Show in the Orlando, Florida Orange County Convention Center.

"The builders and roofing suppliers we met with at IBS appeared to be excited about our tile offerings and our ability to provide superior products at what we perceive as very competitive pricing," said Howard Ullman, Chairman and CEO of OBS parent company China Direct Trading. "We believe that our new double barrel tile is superior to commercially available 'S' tiles in strength -- double the strength required by Dade County, Florida code and permeability, and buyers at the show recognized our tile glazing makes the tiles very low maintenance."

OBS management met with and hired salesmen at the show covering four states along with Jamaica and Canada. The company is now following up on the hundreds of nationwide tile distributor, builder and roofing company sales leads generated at the show as well as shipping orders taken at the show.

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 has sourced and tested quality roof tiles manufactured in China with test results that exceed the Dade County, Florida roofing standards. Over the past 12 months OBS has created a line of double barrel clay roof tiles that come in 20 colors.
