de Economica:

La nueva relación económica entre los países africanos y China está llena de éxitos y reveses potenciales, dice la nigeriana Hafsat Abiola, miembro del Consejo Global de IMOW y defensora de los derechos humanos y la democracia. Ahora, sin embargo, ambas partes tienen un as bajo la manga: las mujeres, su más grande recurso desaprovechado. Abiola es la fundadora de China Africa Bridge y China Africa Forum, así como también fundadora y directora ejecutiva de Kudirat Initiative for Democracy, una organización dedicada a promover la democracia en Nigeria.
