History edit

Bisnis Indonesia opened its first office in an ex Singer's sewing machine service center at Jalan Kramat V/8, Central Jakarta. The newspaper gained its momentum from the rise of stock market in 1987 and new policy in banking known as Paket Oktober (Pakto) 1988. Bisnis Indonesia shifted their coverage to focus on micro-economics and business news, in the time when most competitors still reporting heavily on macro-economics issue. This strategy prove fruitful as stock exchange authority ordered all public listed companies to publish their financial reports and corporate actions.
