August 14, 2023 – Calgary, AB: Asia Green Biotechnology Corp. (“Asia Green” or the “Company”) (CSE:ASIA) announces the passing of Mr. Johannes Kingma, a director and one of founders as well as the past Chief Executive Officer of the Company.  Mr. Kingma passed away unexpectedly in Calgary on August 8 after a short illness.

Mr. Kingma was a visionary in terms of Asia Green’s early development, as it was he who saw the potential for hemp production in the Asian market.  Accordingly, he was instrumental in the Company’s initial structuring and guided the process of incorporation and listing, and participated extensively in the financial and technical establishment of the Company.  The Board of Directors extends its deepest sympathies to Mr. Kingma’s family and friends, and commits to pursuing the business objectives that he put in place.

In commenting on the untimely passing of Mr. Kingma, David Pinkman, CEO, stated: “We are deeply saddened by the passing of our director and friend. This is a significant loss for us as Jo was an important member of our board and a key figure in what we have accomplished at Asia Green.  More importantly and, on a personal note, Jo was a long-time friend whose intelligence and wit inspired me and many others to achieve as much as possible in the business world.  He was a wonderful person.  We offer our sincerest condolences to his family and friends.”
