Equity Investment Fund Small Enterprises
The project's general objective is to spur the growth of small enterprises (SEs) outside the Metropolitan Region, introducing an investment finance and managerial support instrument to the market. Specific objectives are to: (i) set up a venture capital fund and (ii) disseminate the concept of venture capital and help create an enabling environment for development of the venture capital industry. The project has two components. The first would establish a Santiago-based venture capital fund styled Negocios Regionales to invest in small and mid-sized enterprises in Chile, outside the Metropolitan Region. Negocios Regionales is a closed-end investment company to be set up for 10 years, regulated by Law 18,815 as most recently amended (congressional approval of recent proposed changes is expected this year). The Fund will be managed by a specialized company, FCMI Administradora de Fondos No Regulados S.A. The MIF investment will leverage other Fund investments in small companies, defined as those having fewer than 100 employees and under US$5 million in sales and assets. Though the proposed structure for the Fund may appear to be quite traditional, the MIF's involvement is justified by a number of innovative features and higher risks: targeting of the regions, not including the Metropolitan Area; the SE target market and channeling of private funds to these businesses; and the management company, a pooling of professional venture capitalists, a corporate management and restructuring expert, and a technology development agency, Fundación Chile. Comprising the second component -fostering a dialogue on small-business finance- will be a number of technical studies on Chile's venture capital industry and market constraints, and an analysis of key issues relating to SEs' access to the capital market. A workshop is planned as a forum for high-level technical discussions, with foreign experts participating, to launch a constructive dialogue between the public, private, and financial sectors and the academic community. This project will pave the way for a larger conference at which the key issues in the aforementioned exchange of views will be presented and open discussion will be encouraged. This will also be an opportunity to report on progress in the Negocios Regionales Fund.

La industria libre de carbono está más cerca de lo que creemos
El acero, el cemento, los productos químicos, el vidrio o los ladrillos forman la realidad física de nuestra civilización. Los utilizamos para construir casas, escuelas, hospitales, oficinas, carreteras e incluso para crear estructuras que nos ayuden a evitar o reducir el impacto de los desastres naturales. Pero ¿podemos seguir confiando en estos materiales cuando su producción provoca el 34% de las emisiones mundiales de CO2? La respuesta es sí. Según un reciente informe del IDDRI y el BID, es posible transformar la industria.

Global Value Chain Data for Mexico in the Automotive and Electronics Sectors
This report uses the Global Value Chain (GVC) data framework to provide scoping review and analysis of Mexico's current position and potential for using and harvesting GVC data in the automotive and electronics sectors. By conducting the study on GVCs data, we hope to broaden the understanding of the importance of data transfers for GVCs, production, and trade, underlining that data are critical to all companies and not only to the so-called "high-tech companies." Data protection, sharing, and security are also central to manufacturers in the automotive and electronics sectors. This report will review how datafication, data protection, sharing, and security impact Mexico's automotive and electronics industry. This information is analyzed from a global perspective and the viewpoint of Mexico to provide a holistic picture of the situation when identifying trajectories for entry, growth, and upgrading along GVCs that rely on datafication and digital transformation. It will also offer recommendations for regulators and policymakers on how to facilitate successful GVCs' data functioning and guidance for businesses on how to harvest data for growth and digital transformation.

Digitalización de las micro y pequeñas empresas y reducción de la desigualdad regional en México
A partir de tabulados de los Censos Económicos de 2014 y 2019 de México, este trabajo analiza la desigualdad entre unidades económicas en el acceso a las TIC y su relación con características de las empresas relacionadas al mercado laboral. En primer lugar, el estudio encuentra una fuerte correlación positiva entre la adopción de TIC y el tamaño de las unidades económicas; más aún, si bien las diferencias sectoriales en adopción de TIC son pequeñas entre las empresas medianas y grandes, éstas son mucho más marcadas entre las unidades económicas de hasta diez empleados. En cuanto a la dimensión regional, existe una elevada desigualdad entre entidades federativas en la adopción de TIC que se relaciona con la mayor y creciente densidad de empresas medianas y grandes en los estados del norte, y de micro y pequeñas empresas (MyPE) en los estados del sur-sureste. Por último, y contrario a la evidencia para países desarrollados, tanto entre los sectores económicos como entre las entidades federativas los datos muestran una correlación positiva del acceso de empresas a las TIC con la productividad laboral, calidad del empleo, salarios y participación del trabajo en el valor agregado. Desde el punto de vista de la política pública, los resultados sugieren que reducir la brecha digital entre las empresas mexicanas con foco en las MyPE, no sólo tendría impactos positivos en productividad sino también en la reducción de las desigualdades en el mercado laboral.
