SHENZHEN, China , Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. (NYSE: CSR; NASDAQ Dubai: CSR)('The Company' or 'CSST'), a leading provider of security solutions in China , today announced that it has signed a Safe City framework agreement valued at approximately RMB 170 million (approximately US$25 million) with the local government in Guangshui City.

Guangshui City is located in the northeast of Hubei Province with a population of roughly 1 million people. The scope of this project entails a build out of an integrated digital security network, environmental safety detection system, emergency response and security data management facilities for the local public security bureau. Revenue from this project is expected to be recognized in 2009.

Mr. Guoshen Tu, Chief Executive Officer of CSST commented, "We are very excited to announce an additional Safe City project to our project pipeline scheduled for next year. Our strong reputation and proven capabilities providing total security solutions to many local governments in China have allowed us to expand into additional regions of the country. With the various banking facilities we have established over the past year, we are extremely confident that we have secured sufficient financing to help us capture as much Safe City business as possible and meet our ongoing working capital needs without compromising our balance sheet. We started our relationship with IBM Global Financing Asia during the third quarter of this year. This has and will continue to assist in the equipment purchase financing for our various Safe City contracts.

In addition, we have initiated our banking facilities with China Construction Bank to address working capital requirements on specific Safe City contracts. Moving forward, we will begin to work with the Shanghai Pudong Development bank and other domestic banks in china to address working capital and receivable financing for the government Safe City projects in 2009. These various financing facilities will continue to support our strategic efforts to expand our penetration into the government-related Safe City projects. In spite of the global economic slowdown, we continue to see strong momentum from security and infrastructure solutions in the Chinese market. We also believe the recent USD$586 billion stimulus package from Chinese government will provide additional opportunities for our business ahead. We are pleased to be a leading player in China's security market and continue to focus on the execution of our strategic growth plan."
