Argentinean Dress Code

Appearances are very important in both business circles and society at large in Argentina.

You will be partly judged on the way you look. If you are prosperous and successful you should look it. Business attire is rather conservative with men favouring dark suits with ties. Women dress in a more subdued fashion than in the neighbouring country of Brazil with dark suits again being most appropriate.

Overview

This country profile has been produced to give a short overview of some of the key concepts to bear in mind when doing business with contacts in Argentina. It is intended to be an aid to business people who have commercial dealings with counterparties in the country but should not be seen as an exhaustive guide to this topic or as a substitute for more substantial research should there be a need.

With this in mind, we have covered the areas which are key to a better understanding of the cultural mindset underpinning business dealings in Argentina and which are, quite often, extremely different from the approach and thought processes associated with business in other parts of the world.

Therefore this briefing note is broken into short, bite-sized sections on the following topics:

  • Background to business
  • Business Structures
  • Management style
  • Meetings
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Women in business
  • Entertaining
  • Top tips
