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.

Strategies to Strengthen Ecuador's High-Value Cacao Value Chain
Since the early nineteenth century, cacao has been an important export earner for Ecuador. Today the importance of this sector remains, as Ecuador is the main producer and exporter of Fine and Flavor cacao worldwide. Motivated by the main transformations of the global food systems and the increasing demand for multidimensional credence attributes, this study examines the present state of Ecuador's cacao industry, identifies areas of opportunity, and discusses how the private and public sectors can work together to meet existing and emerging challenges. Findings are supported by interviews conducted with the principal actors in the Ecuadorian cacao industry and two case studies. The first case study focuses on how associativity can help cacao farmers producing high-quality beans to differentiate themselves and succeed in modern agri-food markets. The second case study explores the success of a local chocolate firm and its links with local cacao farmers. Findings suggest that market trends have created new business opportunities for cacao producers and chocolate processors. These opportunities are most open to firms who can personalize and differentiate their products, for example, through the use of quality certifications such as organic, fair trade, reduced carbon load, etc. More importantly, market developments are driving exporters to enhance the performance of cacao value chains in the country, but the sector requires coordination to capture reputation and credence-based demands for the local cacao.

New Products, New Markets: Dragon Fruit in Ecuador
Expanding incomes in Asian countries and changes in fresh-fruit value chains have created an important niche for producers of dragon fruit. Ecuadorean producers have responded and taken advantage of these evolving opportunities and market dynamism. By customizing their products to the specific demands of target markets and complying with the standards imposed by modern buyers, Ecuadorian exporters of dragon fruit demonstrate how challenges related to and opportunities in agri-food markets evolution can be met. This study documents the development of the dragon fruit market in Ecuador, with a special emphasis on the analysis of its value chain. The study additionally identifies and analyzes the main drivers of the success of the production and exports of the fruit and examines the main challenges and needs for improved public policies to promote sustainable growth of the sector. Findings are complemented with interviews conducted with the principal actors in the Ecuadorian dragon fruit industry, as well as a case study that involves several relatively recently formed dragon fruit-producing companies in the Amazon region of the country.

El impacto de la ventanilla única para el registro formal de empresas en República Dominicana
Las ventanillas únicas para el registro de empresas pueden reducir significativamente los costos y mejorar el acceso a información para los negocios que entran al sector formal. En este documento se analiza el impacto de un programa a nivel nacional que comprende la implementación de una ventanilla única y la reducción de las tarifas de registro. Además de analizar su impacto en el número de empresas que se formalizan, se explora la manera en que este reconfigura el mercado laboral para mujeres y hombres. El estudio se lleva a cabo en República Dominicana, un país caracterizado por la alta informalidad empresarial y laboral, donde en 2013 el gobierno lanzó la ventanilla digital única Formalízate. Para analizar su impacto se aprovechó el despliegue secuencial del programa en diferentes provincias del país. Los resultados muestran que la introducción del programa en una provincia está asociada con la entrada de un mayor número de microempresas al mercado formal. Cabe señalar que estas empresas se concentran en sectores donde la informalidad era alta antes del despliegue de Formalízate, sobre todo en los sectores de comercio y turismo. Además, los resultados muestran que la participación de las mujeres en la fuerza laboral se ve afectada por el programa, mientras que la participación de los hombres no. De hecho, se observa que la presencia de Formalízate aumentó la participación de las mujeres en el mercado laboral como emprendedoras autoempleadas.

Impactos indirectos de la inversión en infraestructura de transporte: una metodología para construir contrafactuales
El aporte al desarrollo de la inversión en infraestructura de transporte puede ser significativo, pero difícil de cuantificar. Los beneficios directos a los usuarios justifican inversiones en mejoras, pero no capturan la potencial contribución indirecta de estas mejoras en generar oportunidades de desarrollo económico y social derivadas del mayor intercambio comercial. La medición de estos impactos indirectos presenta importantes desafíos en la construcción de contrafactuales, pues se requiere comparar resultados a nivel agregado de sus efectos sobre el comercio, el ingreso, la población, la productividad, el atractivo del lugar y el bienestar de las personas. En años recientes la investigación académica ha venido desarrollando modelos económicos y métodos derivados de la física computacional que hacen posible medir estos efectos indirectos. El propósito de esta nota técnica es presentar estos modelos y mostrar su utilidad para evaluar el impacto indirecto de proyectos de mejoras de infraestructura de transporte. Para ilustrar la metodología presentamos una aplicación para el caso de la ampliación del Corredor del Pacífico.
