With the battle for Indonesia’s presidency all but decided (somebody just needs to convince Prabowo Subianto that he lost), it’s finally time to start looking ahead to the potential promise and peril of President Joko Widodo’s second five-year term. With the country maintaining stable economic growth and proving the fortitude of its democracy after a highly contentious election, the future looks bright, if still full of uncertainties.
The best way to ascertain the direction Indonesia is heading is to stay abreast of all of the key news stories and developments emerging from the archipelago. And with 260 million people dispersed across 17,000 islands spanning 3,000 miles from east to west across the equator, there is always a lot happening here!
That’s where Indonesia Intelligencer comes in.
Indonesia Intelligencer is a premium newsletter that encapsulates all of the week’s most essential business, political and cultural news and analysis from Indonesia in a compact and easily digestible format.
Indonesia Intelligencer was born out of feedback from numerous Coconuts readers who bemoaned the dearth of English language news updates about what’s happening across the archipelago, beyond the biggest story of the day.
The newsletter’s goal is to fill a gap in the market for people or organizations that want a comprehensive overview of all of the news coming out of this enormous and ever-evolving nation, without having to devote endless hours searching and sifting through the local media or foreign news outlets that irregularly cover the archipelago — that’s what we’re here for!
If you need to stay on top of Indonesia, you need Indonesian Intelligencer. But you don’t have to just take our word for it! You can check out last week’s edition and other a sample of previous newsletter’s right here.
