China Information Technology's Shuohuang Railway GIS Project Advances

SHENZHEN, China, June 20, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — China Information Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: CNIT), a leading provider of Information Technologies and Display Technologies based in China, today announced that its project with Shuohuang Railway Development Co., Ltd. (Shuohuang Railway) has made important breakthroughs having recently passed its appraisal phase, and now entering its implementation phase. The project will be the first time GIS technology has been adopted by China's railway industry.

In January 2011, Shuohuang Railway commissioned the Company to contribute its sophisticated GIS systems to the Shuohuang Railway Geographic Information System (SR-GIS). On June 1, 2011, a special appraisal meeting was held in Beijing to plan the further implementation of the new SR-GIS.  The project, undertaken by the Company's controlled entity Wuda Geo Informatics Co., Ltd. ("Wuda Geo"), recently acquired all necessary approvals for its use. The GIS system itself has won expert praise for its comprehensive professional equipment management capabilities, which include the simultaneous management of trains, automobiles machines, labor and electricity that are within the same geographical space.

The Shuohuang railway system is one of the main transportation channels for China's National West-to-East Coal Transfer project, and carries over 350 tons of coal annually across the country.

Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, Chairman and CEO of China Information Technology, commented, "We are very pleased by the rapid pace at which this project has progressed, and we are excited to see it finally implemented across the Shuohuang railway. We believe the SR-GIS will significantly modernize and streamline this critical rail system.  Our years of experience in GIS research and design, and a long track record of successfully executed projects, made us the ideal GIS provider for this mission-critical project.  With our superior R&D capabilities and first-mover status, we expect to continue expanding our market share of GIS in China through rail and other new industries."
