CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS

INNOVATION AND COMPETITIVENESS IN MINING VALUE CHAINS

 

The mining sector is a very important activity for many Latin American countries. In Peru, Chile and Brazil, it reaches respectively 11.7%, 9.9% and 1.9% of GDP, and 21%, 60%, and 46% of exports in 2015. Still, the mining industry has had limited success in sparking a process of economic transformation and diversification spreading to other activities.
