/EINPresswire.com/ -- U.S. Army to work with Colombian military to implement program

BARRANQUILLA, COLOMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov 16, 2016) - New Colombia Resources, Inc. (OTC PINK: NEWC) ("New Colombia" or the "Company"), a Colombian company listed in the U.S. with premium metallurgical coal properties and medical marijuana operations, was called upon by a division of the U.S. Department of Defense to help a remote indigenous area of Colombia establish legal medical marijuana and hemp operations. A four-member team from the 98th Civil Affairs Battalion Airborne Baker Company based in Fort Bragg, NC traveled to Barranquilla, Colombia to meet over the weekend with Company President, John Campo, as well as stakeholder and spokesperson retired MLB All Star Edgar Renteria.

Several items were discussed at the meeting including the apparent support from the U.S. Department of State at the U.S Embassy in Bogota, the support from the Colombian General in command of the area, and New Colombia's desire to build out the zone to supply the World with 100% organic, all natural "Made in Colombia" medical marijuana and industrial hemp products with a need to create a market for these products. Initial efforts will be focused totally on legally supplying the local and World hemp and medicinal marijuana market, not recreational. There are hundreds of products that can produce creating thousands of jobs as well as sustainable crops for farmers with a guaranteed customer. New Colombia is committed to creating a market for these products; aggressive marketing efforts will be described soon.

New Colombia's joint venture, Sannabis, has been producing high quality medical marijuana products on indigenous land in Colombia since 2014. The addition of new plantations will allow both companies to sell container loads of Sannabis products around the world. "I'm honored to receive this call to duty from the U.S. Army, as a dual citizen I pledge my allegiance to both the Republic of Colombia and the United States of America," stated John Campo, President of New Colombia Resources, Inc. At the meeting both Mr. Campo and Mr. Renteria were given a special coin from the 98th Civil Affairs Battalion Airborne Baker Company in Colombia as a token of appreciation and commitment. The Company takes this very seriously and will work very hard to educate farmers on the value their crops will bring to mankind and the need to supply the best product possible while ensuring their livelihood and that of the whole community.

Sannabis will hold workshops and other socialization programs to train workers in this new industry. "As representatives of the U.S, it was great to see the passion this special op team had for a better Colombia; we're lucky to have them here. Needless to say, I consider this support to be very significant to our efforts to be one of the larger medical marijuana suppliers in the World," further commented Mr. Campo.

New Colombia Resources and their partners will be meeting with U.S. Army Special Operations officers, Colombian military Generals, tribal chiefs, and local townspeople in the next 10-15 days at a yet to be announced location in Colombia. More details will be provided at a later date.
