Factors Affecting The GSCM (GSCM ) In The Retail Sector Of Pakistan


  • Salman Manzoor


This paper aims at examining the importance of GSCM and the challenges that are faced by the GSCM in the retail section of Pakistan. In this research, we will identify the variables (lack of green products, lack of government policies, lack of investment cost and the GSCM) that will have negative and positive effect on GSCM on the retail section of Pakistan. The lack of green products, government policies and the investment cost has negative effect on the GSCM but the GSCM has a positive effect on GSCM on the retail section of Pakistan.
