Implementation of trade Bedfrijfsreglementerings Ordinance (BRO) in 1934 was a legacy of the Dutch colonial law after over 80 years being used in Indonesia. Indonesia had finally made official trade regulation in February 2014 Indonesia. The Law Number 7/2014 concerning Trade was made by prioritizing the national interest and intended to protect traditional markets and modern markets with local products, to make trade regulations for the country internal used and to provide protection for the consumer. The government's role in the modern market legal position in the retail trade system in Indonesia is something that could not be ignored. It is very clear, if the condition of a national law is effective, then the economic development would be easly implemented. However, on the contrary, if the law is working effectively, it will certainly have a negative impact on traditional markets and modern markets. The condition also applies to Indonesia as a country that is currently actively doing economic sovereignty. Moreover, when Indonesia declared itself as a legal state (rechtstaat) within its constitution. From here we could implied that Indonesia is looking for two things; First, the law is expected to be functioned; and Second, whereas the law is functioned, then the realization of the legal position of the modern market at the retail trade system in Indonesia would be easly realized.
