As a visitor it is best to let your host do the pouring. </li></ul><ul><li>Humour in Argentina can get very personal. It is not unusual for someone to ridicule your weight or wardrobe. This is merely a sign of affection rather than any serious personal attack. </li></ul><ul><li>The Falklands should always be referred to as the Malvinas Islands – to call it anything else would open a political and historical can of worms. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Greetings <ul><li>When meeting a handshake is the norm. As the relationship warms up this may lead to more physical contact such as a pat on the shoulder or a hug. </li></ul><ul><li>Women will often exchange kisses on the cheek. </li></ul><ul><li>Titles, especially among the older generation, are very important.

The middle weeks of July are also when many go skiing. </li></ul><ul><li>Due to their hierarchical nature Argentines would expect to be met by someone sharing the same rank. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not immediately begin discussing business. Remember to invest in the relationship; so engage in plenty of small talk and show an interest in the person you are meeting. </li></ul><ul><li>It is quite normal for people to accept telephone calls and attend to other business during a meeting. </li></ul><ul><li>Decisions are not reached at meetings. Meetings are for discussion and to exchange ideas </li></ul>

Where there are tricky issues to address, do so in a manner that places nobody in direct blame. </li></ul><ul><li>Hierarchy is respected so it is imperative to show deference and esteem to those in positions of authority. </li></ul>
