Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

This policy focuses on the agents of arts-related crafts and occupations, specifically with those found in the production link, and it seeks to resolve the weaknesses the country has shown for staging dance, music, theatre and circus productions; but also in film, television and radio production, music recording, mixing and mastering, and graphic and book production.

Its main initiatives aim to improve the production capacity of these fields in the medium term, emphasizing the quality of arts goods and services; to multiply job opportunities for the youth in their own regions in order to minimize emigration, specially for those who choose to learn and practice the offices and occupations associated with the production of the arts; also, to protect the knowledge associated with these arts by making it present in the marketplace both of ideas, and of cultural products.

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

circus sectors.
* Progress made in formal qualifications for stage design, sound production, lighting, wardrobe and makeup workers.
