On a general theoretical level, Greece can be classified as a semi‐peripheral country, in the sense that, although in economic, technological and political terms it has historically been dependent on the countries of the Western industrial centre, it has, in the years since the end of World War II, experienced an externally oriented industrialisation, based on exports of agricultural and light industrial products, as well as the steady expansion of its internal market. In other words, the overall context of consumption activities is not that of the peripheral countries of Africa, Asia or certain cases in Latin America, where dependency links are much more direct and decisive for determining development perspectives.
