Article 9, On Equity, Solidarity and Territorial Justice

The State guarantees equitable treatment and harmonious and solidary development among the different territorial entities, advocating for their general interest and without establishing arbitrary differences among them, guaranteeing equal conditions regarding access to public services, employment, and all social benefits, regardless of their spatial location, and establishing, if necessary, positive actions in favour of impoverished and historically vulnerable groups. The State of Chile will foster a fair, harmonious, and solidary territorial development that allows for the effective integration of the various cities, urban and rural, promoting horizontal equity in the granting of goods and services.
