Staggered Entry Strategy

In development economics, the approach in which a government allows only a few companies in an industry, but periodically allows a new company to enter the market. The staggered entry strategy allows companies time to develop their products, which may be quite expensive, but also gives them the incentive to perform well, as the government may provide added competition at any time.
