Abstract:

ABSTRACT

The increasing consolidation and concentration of retailing in developed countries has been a major theme within the commodity chain literature. In particular, the emergence of buyer-driven commodity chains was predominantly linked to the increasing market power of retailers and brand-name companies in countries such as the United States, the UK, France and Germany. However, the market and retailing structures of developing countries has so far been largely neglected in the commodity chain literature. Therefore, this paper aims to explore the structural components of clothing retailing in Indonesia and to unravel the governance and inter-firm relationships within the clothing commodity chain of the Indonesian domestic market.
