Mondo is a unique database that simultaneously provides macroeconomic data, data on international commerce as well as sectorial and innovation data. Beyond those variables, this represents a paradigm change. We believe that traditional databases are focused on a mercantile approach and may lead to biased analysis. By having access to sectorial data, we incite the user to think in terms of a meso-economic context. This data brings us closer to the reality of globalization and translates into the implementation of global value chains (GVC) from multinational companies (MNC). The thought process is motivated by the consideration of those GVC and the reasons for the attractiveness of certain sectors in emerging countries.
