Volltext/Document

Supermarket chains are on the rise in developing countries. They offer a vast range of high-quality goods and rely on efficient logistics. At the same time, they trigger concentration processes, displacing other retailers and their suppliers. The retail revolution must therefore be managed in a way that serves developmental goals. So far, policymakers and other relevant actors have been dragging their feet in this regard.
