In the current era where the exchange and flow of information is constant, conducting research is an integral part of business organizations’ decision-making processes, especially when it comes to major operations. Through proper research and analysis, business players can remain well-informed to develop the best strategy and stay one step ahead in the current competitive environment.

We conduct research not only on conventional research projects, but also on background checks, stakeholder mapping and risk and issue mapping to help our clients make decisions, anticipate future challenges and minimize risks effectively in doing business.

Strategic Briefing

We organize exclusive briefings on strategic Indonesian political and economic issues for C-level executives to help them make strategic decisions. We deploy leading experts from our founders – the CSIS, The Jakarta Post and Prasetiya Mulya University – to lead thoughtful discussions and rich interaction with our clients. To ensure effective interplay with our clients and achieve successful outcomes, we limit the number of participants in our strategic briefings.

Beyond just supplying our clients with information on the latest economic and political issues, our strategic briefing also provides a platform where members of the business community can expand their network and connect with fellow business players and key speakers. Through our networking platform, we aim to help our clients develop their content, contacts and potential collaboration with fellow business players and key speakers.


We provide a weekly political and business-economic briefing service through Tenggara Backgrounder, which combines insights and research analysis by experts from the CSIS and Prasetiya Mulya University as well as background information from The Jakarta Post journalists. Each edition of Tenggara Backgrounder contains analyses of at least two political and two business-economic issues, with each issue carefully chosen based on the political and economic situation in the week of publication.

Subscribers of Tenggara Backgrounder are entitled to request analyses on specific economic or political issues that might be most relevant to their particular need.
