Retail Indonesia (2009)
Indonesia offers a good market potential for modern retailers. The market generated $8 billion worth of sales in 2008 and is expected to strengthen in the coming years. Competition is very intense and foreign companies are particularly strong in the hypermarket sector. In the Indonesian retail industry, Presidential Regulation No. 112/2007 provides guidance for modern retailers on location, building size, and trading terms. The regulation is however deemed to be relatively weak and does not accommodate some current business models.
