Refinitiv expands teamup with Antara for real-time insights

Refinitiv has expanded its long term partnership with Indonesian national news agency Antara, which has been in operation for over 80 years. 

Available in Bahasa Indonesian and English, coverage has been added to the Refinitiv Data Platform so customers can now access in-depth news and information to enable smarter decisions and drive growth for business in Indonesia 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.

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.

“This cooperation, I believe, covers the best of all worlds:  the 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,” said Meidyatama Suryodiningrat, President Director at Antara.  “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.”

Steven Carroll, managing director for ASEAN at Refinitiv, said their objective is to empower our customers to make informed business and investment decisions through trusted data, insights and technology.
