Skill acquiring information in a South American country (9)


I believe the answer is:


'south american country' is the definition.
(country in South America)

'skill acquiring information in a' is the wordplay.
'skill' becomes 'art' (both can mean a talent).
'acquiring' indicates putting letters inside.
'information' becomes 'gen' (gen can informally mean information).
'art' going around 'gen' is 'argent'.

(Other definitions for argentina that I've seen before include "Its capital Buenos Aires" , "An ingrate in S American country" , "Silver country" , "Evita's country" , "part of 18 [SOUTH AMERICA]" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
