Comercio para alimentar el mundo, una agenda estratégica para América Latina y el Caribe
América Latina y el Caribe (ALC) tiene una oportunidad única para atender el crecimiento esperado de la demanda agroalimentaria a nivel mundial.  La región representa el 14% de la producción mundial de alimentos y el 45% del comercio agroalimentario internacional neto[1].

El enfoque de la valla de la calidad: una aplicación a estudios de caso en la Región Andina
A pesar del potencial de las mypes para contribuir a la productividad y al empleo de calidad, muchas de ellas permanecen en un estado intermedio, sin lograr una modernización sustancial. Están atrapadas detrás de una “valla de la calidad” (Sabel & Ghezzi, 2021) que encapsula una serie de requisitos y estándares necesarios para su integración efectiva en cadenas de valor modernas. Revisamos los resultados de una serie de estudios de caso que examinan las vallas de la calidad en varios sectores de mypes en la región andina. Estos resultados muestran que estas vallas existen no solo en sectores de bienes, como la agricultura, sino que también están presentes en los sectores de servicios, que representan la mayoría de las mypes en la región. Además, los casos demuestran que las variables que explicarían esas vallas pueden categorizarse en tres grupos principales: (a) limitaciones en habilidades y conocimientos especializados; (b) desafíos en la aglomeración y articulación necesarias para alcanzar escalas de mercado eficientes; y (c) restricciones financieras que impiden inversiones cruciales. Estos desafíos persisten debido a fallas, tanto de Estado como de mercado, que se manifiestan en una regulación ineficiente, deficiencias educativas y de infraestructura, y una insuficiente difusión de conocimientos y tecnologías. Ante estos hallazgos, sugerimos la aplicación de políticas correctivas que cumplan un papel decisivo en facilitar la modernización de las mypes. Las fallas de Estado requieren de políticas para aumentar la eficiencia del sector financiero y reducir los costos de la formalidad, así como para racionalizar los estándares a las realidades de los mercados de las mypes y mejorar la coordinación y focalización de infraestructura y formación. Las fallas de mercado también implican un rol para el Estado, que consiste en aumentar la transferencia de capacidades y tecnología, y, en particular, promover la articulación y aglomeración, lo cual se puede lograr tanto directamente (por ejemplo, con programas como los CITE de Perú) como indirectamente, subsidiando una parte a través del sector privado. Las intervenciones políticas bien diseñadas y enfocadas pueden cumplir un papel prioritario para superar las vallas de la calidad y contribuir a transformar las mypes para orientarlas hacia la modernización.

Para seguir el ritmo de ciudadanos hiperconectados y del comercio que ahora es cada vez más digital, los gobiernos no se pueden quedar atrás. Muchos países tienen un alto nivel de interés: el 75% de gobiernos ya cuentan con una estrategia de gobierno digital. Sin embargo, estos esfuerzos no se han traducido a la práctica ya que en 2017, solo el 7% ciudadanos latinoamericanos hizo un trámite en línea.

Cross-Border Intra-Firm Trade and the Propagation of Idiosyncratic Shocks: A New Dataset
We study how disruptions in international production networks propagate across countries. We use comprehensive data on natural disasters around the globe over the last two decades from the EM-DAT and SHELDUS database to identify exogenous shocks to sourcing foreign inputs. We then trace out the effect of these shocks on activity of multinationals located in the United States. and their network of foreign affiliates using U.S. Bill of Lading microdata and data on domestic and international ownership linkages from Orbis. Our findings indicate that major natural disasters can have an economically significant negative impact even far from the directly affected areas. Furthermore, the strength of the propagation depends on whether the shocks led to disruptions in intra-firm or arms-length trade. This technical note provides detailed information on the construction of the novel dataset used in Alviarez et al. (2021).

Digital Technologies and Globalization: A Survey of Research and Policy Applications
In recent years, the world has witnessed the rise of multiple specific digital technologies, including online trade platforms, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, cloud computing, blockchain, and financial technology (fintech). These digital technologies are fundamentally transforming the ways that firms and individuals — as both workers and consumers — communicate, search, trade, and invest. They are also substantially changing how governments design and implement trade and investment policies and programs and, in so doing, how they interact with firms, individuals, and each other. This paper reviews the growing empirical literature on the trade, investment, and broader development effects of the adoption of specific digital technologies. It also describes the policy applications of these technologies and discusses the incipient empirical literature on the impacts thereof. Based on this review, it identifies several open questions and avenues of future research that may be useful for deepening our understanding of digital technologies and their policy implications.
