In addition, he indicated that the choice of cities «was made by prioritizing those communes that with a lower level of development and fewer resources, have been able to optimize and carry out their work efficiently. In this way we make sure that this monetary support, which rewards good management, gets where it is needed most today.» The authority also stated that «75% of Figem’s resources will be allocated to support the management of the country’s least developed communes.» In this way, among the communes benefited is Padre Las Casas, San Javier, Collipulli, Parral and El Quisco (3), Mejillones, Requinoa, Casablanca, Romeral and Las Cabras (4), as well as Easter Island, Torres del Paine, Maule, San Nicolás and Panguipulli (5).
