SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 23, 2014) - GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. ("Global Hemp Group" or the "Company") (CSE:GHG)(FRANKFURT:GHG)

Global Hemp Group Inc. announced today a new cooperation with African Frontier Partners for economic development and environmental stewardship in sub-Saharan Africa. AFP is an advisory/investment management firm engaged in providing and structuring debt/equity finance for clients in the middle market category, government owned enterprises and not-for profit organizations operating in Africa. www.afpconsortium.com

Working in cooperation with AFP to forge key relationships in order to gain the necessary regional support and regulatory approval, GHG plans to develop large-scale Industrial Hemp cultivation and processing facilities in Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Ghana. Additionally significant research and development is planned in conjunction with local universities specializing in pharmacological and agricultural studies.

Clement Aboge, the managing partner at AFP says, "AFP is very excited to partner with GHG in Africa. We believe there are significant synergies and that the promotion of the Industrial Hemp Industry, research, and farming will have significant Social impact and lift millions of People out of Poverty on the African continent, a subject we are extremely passionate about. AFP 's vision has always been to tap into the experience, brain trust and expertise of its partners in the west with a goal of attracting meaningful capital investment and innovation into the African continent. We are therefore quite pleased to forge an alignment and collaboration with GHG to achieve its goals. We believe this effort will result in high social and environmental impact, including empowering women [and children/families], and enabling millions to live in dignity, as well as providing positive environmental impact through the restoration of farmlands and reducing the carbon foot print of the African Continent."
