IT IS A MEASURE TAKEN BY THE PACIFIC ALLIANCE (PA) CULTURE TECHNICAL GROUP, WHERE CHILE PARTICIPATES THROUGH THE MINCAP.
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

THE PACIFIC ALLIANCE CULTURE TECHNICAL GROUP IS A SPACE FOR ECONOMIC INTEGRATION THAT, AMONG OTHER OBJECTIVES, SEEKS TO CREATE A FREE TRADE CORRIDOR OR AREA IN TERMS OF FREE MOVEMENT OF CULTURAL GOODS AND SERVICES, CAPITAL, MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE, ETC. IN THE CONTEXT OF THESE OBJECTIVES, A "STUDY OF MEASUREMENT AND CHARACTERIZATION OF TRADE FLOWS AND BARRIERS FOR THE COMMERCIALIZATION OF CREATIVE GOODS AND SERVICES BETWEEN MEXICO, PERU, CHILE AND COLOMBIA" WAS COMMISSIONED. THUS, A FIRST PHASE OF THE STUDY INCLUDED A CHAPTER CALLED "DESCRIPTION OF THE BARRIERS TO TRADE FLOWS BETWEEN PA COUNTRIES" AND HAD A SPECIFIC SUBTITLE ON "BARRIERS TO THE MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE" ADDITIONALLY, THIS GROUP IS INITIATING WORK THAT PROPOSES THE CREATION OF A "DIGITAL REPOSITORY FOR CULTURAL CIRCULATION". IN THIS REGARD, IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT DIGITAL REPOSITORIES HAVE BECOME IMPORTANT IN RECENT YEARS, PRESENTING THEMSELVES AS A CHANNEL AND SOURCE OF SPECIALIZED DIGITAL INFORMATION, ORGANIZED AND ACCESSIBLE TO READERS FROM VARIOUS AREAS OF THE ARTS AND CULTURAL INDUSTRIES WHO ARE PRIMARILY INTERESTED IN THE CIRCULATION OF CULTURAL GOODS AND SERVICES, BUT ALSO INTERESTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SECTOR. THE REPOSITORIES PLAY A FUNDAMENTAL ROLE GIVEN THE LACK OF DIRECT AND CLEAR INFORMATION REGARDING THE PROCEDURES, FACILITIES AND EXISTING BARRIERS FOR THE CIRCULATION OF CULTURAL GOODS AND SERVICES. IN THIS SENSE, THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THE "DIGITAL REPOSITORY ON CULTURE AND ARTS OF THE PACIFIC ALLIANCE" IS TO PROMOTE THE CIRCULATION AND DECREASE BARRIERS OF PRIORITY SECTORS FOR INTERREGIONAL EXCHANGE BETWEEN THE COUNTRIES OF THE PACIFIC ALLIANCE, INITIATING THIS ACTION WITH THE PUBLISHING INDUSTRY BY IDENTIFYING PROBLEMS, FINDING SOLUTIONS, AND CREATING COMMON TUTORIALS OR MANUALS.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

BASED ON THE REVIEW OF THE BARRIERS PRESENTED AND BY WAY OF CONCLUSION AFTER CARRYING OUT THIS STUDY, IT IS POSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY 3 AREAS THAT ENCOMPASS THE DIVERSITY OF OBSTACLES THAT CULTURAL AGENTS AND COMPANIES HAVE TO TRADE IN GOODS AND SERVICES. IN THE FIRST INSTANCE, THERE ARE THE BARRIERS THAT GENERATE COST OVERRUNS AND ADDITIONAL ECONOMIC BURDENS. THE COST OF TRANSPORTATION, FOR EXAMPLE, IS ONE OF THESE BARRIERS THAT AFFECTS ALL CULTURAL INDUSTRIES ACROSS THE BOARD. THESE COST OVERRUNS HARM CULTURAL GOODS AND SERVICES THAT ENTER AND LEAVE THE COUNTRY IN TWO WAYS. ON THE ONE HAND, COST OVERRUNS COMPROMISE RESOURCES THAT LIMIT THE ABILITY OF CREATIVE AGENTS TO GENERATE, PRODUCE, AND CIRCULATE CONTENT AND CREATIVE GOODS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. THE SECOND AREA THAT ENCOMPASSES DIFFERENT BARRIERS COMPRISES THE LACK OF PEDAGOGY, KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE IN THE FACE OF THE REGULATIONS THAT GOVERN THE MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE, GOODS AND SERVICES, AS WELL AS THE COMMERCIAL USE OF INTERNATIONAL FRAMEWORKS AND TREATIES. FOR ALL SECTORS, 56 THE LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE CUSTOMS NORM IMPLIES AN OBSTACLE THAT AFFECTS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CIRCULATION PROCESSES. AND FINALLY, THE LAST BARRIER COMPRISES AN OBVIOUS GAP IN POLICIES, MEASURES, AND INCENTIVES THAT RECOGNIZE AND ENCOURAGE THE CREATION, AND CIRCULATION OF PEOPLE, GOODS, AND SERVICES. IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, IN ALL SECTORS THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH POLICIES TO STRENGTHEN, AND ENSURE THE COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES THAT THE AGENTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING THROUGH EMPIRICAL KNOWLEDGE AND CULTURAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP.
