The leaders were gifted with alpaca wool scarves woven by women working in the mountainous province of Catamarca, the organizers said on Friday.
In memory of the summit, the spouses of the leaders were also presented with bracelets made of silver mined in Argentina. In addition, the heads of state will be able to familiarize themselves with the gastronomic products with which Argentina is associated, in particular, wine from the world-famous Mendoza region.

According to local media, the souvenirs were selected by the wife of Argentine President Mauricio Macri, Juliana Awada. She wanted to show the guests as much of her country's culture as possible since the leaders were going to be in Argentina for just one or two days.
