Refinitiv expands partnership with Indonesia's National News Agency to provide realtime Indonesia market insights

Refinitiv has expanded its long term partnership with Antara, Indonesia's national news agency to provide customers with access to in-depth news and information in Bahasa Indonesian and English across Refinitiv's products, including via Eikon.

As Indonesia's economy expands at the fastest pace in seven years, an understanding of the local business and political climate is crucial for international businesses looking to capture growth opportunities in the market. Through its breaking and in-depth articles on Indonesia's politics, economy and business, finance, sports, as well as international news, Antara is regarded as a trusted and quality news source with an extensive network.
Refinitiv's Eikon provides an open technology platform that allows users to access real-time, market-moving news and analysis to support smarter business decision-making.
"Antara is pleased to expand our partnership with Refinitiv. This cooperation, I believe, covers the best of all worlds:  he world-wide network of Refinitiv combined with the local knowledge of Antara and our network which reaches all parts of Indonesia – one of the most vibrant counties in Southeast Asia. We believe that this cooperation will continue to be long-lasting and very in-depth in the way that it can provide you with the necessary information and knowledge that you need," says Meidyatama Suryodiningrat, President Director at Antara. 
"Refinitiv continues to invest in high quality content for our local markets and are pleased to build on our already strong relationship with Antara. Our objective is to empower our customers to make informed business and investment decisions through trusted data, insights and technology.
