Étude géographique des mutations du commerce de détail au Mexique. Le cas de la Frontière Nord et de la ville de Tijuana : exception ou modèle précurseur ?

Abstract : By integrating into the North American Free Trade Association (NAFTA) in 1994 and opening up to nternational trade, Mexico progressively abandoned the development model based on the substitution of import goods. Mexican companies were from then on subjected to international competition from foreign firms which were in addition allowed to invest directly into the country.
This research analyses the impact of this new reality on retail trade : the evolution of commercial structures, the re-organization of Mexican consortiums responsable for nationwide distribution and the territorial re-organization of commercial activities.
The northern borderland, which was traditionally more open to international trade and geographically closer to the USA, has developped within this new context. Does it represent an exemplary economic model for the whole of Mexico ? Is Tijuana (Baja California) - the most commercially active city in this border area an urban archetype or is it just an exception?
