Innovation and Competitiveness in Mining Value Chains in Latin America
This paper provides an international overview of the mining global value chain (GVC) and its most recent transformations and trends, focusing on Argentina, Brazil, and Peru. The study uses international trade data and patent and scientific publications data. By using trade in value added, we first investigate the role of those countries in the international mining trade, and their specialization, participation, and position in the mining GVC for the period 2005-15. The analysis is carried out for both mining products and mining-related services, and also looks at the contribution of services to mining exports. Second, we analyze the evolution of innovative activity and the direction of technological change in the mining sector over the past 40 years by looking at patent applications, both internationally and with attention to the three target countries. We also provide an overview of, and some insights on, knowledge flow in the mining sector based on scientific production.

Sector de servicios una oportunidad para la diversificación productiva
La región andina se enfrenta no solo al desafío imperante de la descarbonización global, sino también a la problemática de la baja productividad en las micro y pequeñas empresas, lo cual impacta de manera significativa en la economía. Esta realidad subraya la necesidad urgente de superar las barreras de calidad para integrarse en cadenas de valores modernas. En este contexto, el sector de servicios, como principal empleador en la región, se revela como una pieza clave en la reconfiguración económica. La diversificación económica y el aumento de la productividad agregada se presentan como imperativos ineludibles. Las oportunidades para incrementar las exportaciones de servicios basados en conocimiento adquieren mayor relevancia, consolidando a la región andina como un actor significativo en el mercado internacional. En este proceso, el sector turístico emerge como un componente esencial para el desarrollo sostenible, aprovechando la rica biodiversidad y la geografía única de la región. Este potencial no solo promete un aumento en la atracción de visitantes, sino también una fuente vital de ingresos. A su vez, el auge de los servicios basados en plataformas digitales presenta nuevas oportunidades, aunque el desafío del aseguramiento social plantea una cuestión crucial en la transición hacia una economía más digitalizada y conectada. En resumen, la descarbonización global y la baja productividad en las micro y pequeñas empresas se perfilan como desafíos centrales para la economía de la región andina. Superar estas barreras se torna esencial para la consecución de un desarrollo económico sostenible y resistente, donde el sector de servicios desempeña un papel fundamental en la transformación y modernización de la región.
