Falklands flagsDuring a recent UKTI roadshow – aimed at encouraging an increase in exports to Latin America – Santander’s Latin America Desk Head, Mauricio Munguia, spoke to UKTI Country Officer for Argentina, Tim Hanson, about prospects in Argentina – as reported in Global Banking & Finance Review.
