Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

ON APRIL 17, 2018, LAW NO. 21,087 WAS PUBLISHED IN THE OFFICIAL GAZETTE, WHICH "DECLARES OCTOBER 20 OF EACH YEAR AS THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY FOR DIALOGUE AND DEVELOPMENT". IN 2007, CHILE RATIFIED THE "CONVENTION ON THE PROTECTION AND PROMOTION OF THE DIVERSITY OF CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS" OF THE ORGANIZATION OF NATIONS FOR EDUCATION, SCIENCE AND CULTURE, WHICH IS INSTALLED AT THE LEVEL OF WORLD HERITAGE AND ITS ACCENT IS PLACED MAINLY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF CULTURAL RIGHTS, WHOSE FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVE IS TO CREATE, IN AN INCREASINGLY INTERCONNECTED WORLD, AN ENVIRONMENT THAT ALLOWS ALL CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS TO MANIFEST THEMSELVES IN THEIR RICH CREATIVE DIVERSITY. IN THIS SENSE, "IT IS ABOUT GIVING NATIONS THE POSSIBILITY OF PROTECTING THEIR CULTURAL INDUSTRIES (LITERATURE, CINEMA, THEATER, MUSIC, SONG, TELEVISION, PUBLISHING, POETRY, FOLKLORE, ETC.) IN A FRAMEWORK OF DEMOCRACY, TOLERANCE, JUSTICE SOCIAL AND MUTUAL RESPECT BETWEEN PEOPLES AND THEIR CULTURES AS INDISPENSABLE FACTORS FOR PEACE AND SECURITY AT THE LOCAL, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVEL".

THE PROJECT CONSIDERS THREE IMPORTANT ASPECTS: THAT THIS CONVENTION CONSTITUTES TODAY IN CHILEAN REGULATIONS ONE OF THE MOST RELEVANT LEGAL INSTRUMENTS TO SUPPORT THE DESIGN OF CULTURAL POLICIES AND INSTITUTIONS, AS WELL AS THE PROTECTION OF HERITAGE AND RESPECT FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLES; THAT THE CHILEAN STATE MUST STILL ADOPT THE INTERNAL MEASURES NECESSARY FOR THE FULL ENTRY INTO FORCE OF THIS CONVENTION; AND, THAT CULTURAL DIVERSITY IS A DRIVING FORCE FOR DEVELOPMENT, NOT ONLY WITH REGARD TO ECONOMIC GROWTH, BUT AS A MEANS OF HAVING A MORE ENRICHING INTELLECTUAL, AFFECTIVE, MORAL AND SPIRITUAL LIFE, THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN RESOLUTION NO. 57/24 PROCLAIMED MAY 21 AS THE WORLD DAY FOR CULTURAL DIVERSITY. THAT IS WHY THE LAW COMMEMORATES THE DAY OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY TO UNDERSTAND ITS VALUE, IMPROVE NATIONAL COEXISTENCE, BEING A DAY OF REFLECTION AND INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE. TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THAT RESPECT AND PROMOTION OF THE DIVERSITY OF CULTURAL EXPRESSIONS ARE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE CULTURE OF A COUNTRY AND THAT INCORPORATING ITS RECOGNITION INTO THE CHILEAN LEGAL FRAMEWORK WILL HELP TO DEEPEN AND REFLECT ON THE VALUES OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY TO LIVE BETTER TOGETHER AND VALUE DIFFERENCES. IT IS PROPOSED ON OCTOBER 20, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THAT THE COMMEMORATION DATE PROCLAIMED BY UNESCO, WHICH IS MAY 21, COINCIDES WITH THE COMMEMORATION OF THE NAVAL COMBAT OF IQUIQUE.
