Falkland Islands (Malvinas) risk brief

Report summary

Geopolitics is a key risk for operators in the Falklands/Malvinas. British sovereignty is strongly disputed by Argentina, which has imposed an economic embargo that heightens the remoteness and exacerbates infrastructure and supply chain challenges.  Companies active in the islands are banned from investing in Argentina and employees could even be subject to criminal charges should they enter that country. Other risks are much less and the islands have a favourable business climate.
