Fitch: Indonesian Modern Retailers' Store Growth to Slow

(The following statement was released by the rating agency) Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: Indonesian Retailing Dashboard 3Q14 here JAKARTA/SYDNEY, September 03 (Fitch) Fitch Ratings says in a new report that it expects the number of new modern retail stores in Indonesia to increase at a slower pace in the next 12 months due to high store density in Greater Jakarta (Jabodetabek) and retailers' slower expansion outside the region. Over the medium term, though, Fitch expects the modern retail sector to continue to expand, driven by the country's large and youthful population and a growing middle class. The main obstacles to further penetration of modern retail in Indonesia are the country's poor infrastructure and government protection for traditional retailers.
