Edelman Jakarta's view

Edelman Jakarta's view

Indonesia is an extraordinary country. A population of over 240 million – the world’s 4th most populous country and its largest Muslim democracy – across a vast archipelago of over 17,000 islands which, east to west, spans an area broader than the Continental USA. Indonesia is a nation of huge ethnic, cultural and political diversity with its yin-yang of around 100 million urban city dwellers and nearly 150 million in developing rural communities.

Edelman has two offices in Jakarta—IndoPacific Edelman and Zeno Stratcom. With more than 170 staff across these offices, Edelman is, by far, the largest public relations presence in Indonesia. In February 2013 IndoPacific Edelman – rebrands as Edelman Indonesia. With 140 staff, IndoPacific Edelman offers clients services across five divisions: Corporate & Public Affairs (including financial); Digital and Creative; Marcoms and Technology; Health and Human Services (including NGO services and community relations) and Research.

With a two-decade heritage in the country, IndoPacific Edelman has been internationally recognized for our work with issues and crisis management over the years. Approached by Indonesia’s government, we managed crisis communications and staffed in-zone international media centers following the country’s significant disasters, including bombings in Bali and Jakarta and the great 2004 Aceh tsunami and 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake. The firm volunteers with the USAID and AMCHAM Disaster Response Plan, as line communications officers for disaster emergency response.

Strongly led by our Public Affairs, government relations and Corporate teams, Edelman’s Jakarta offices also provide distinctive practices and expertise in health care, technology, consumer and financial services. We are recognized for our expertise in market entry, industrial relations, community and NGO engagement, litigation PR and regional government relations — and our digital business is an Edelman regional hub, serving clients around South East Asia and beyond, as far away as the Middle East.

Both our IndoPacific Edelman and Stratcom offices are designed around our staff’s individuality and cultures. Our open spaces, hot colors and modern decor let our teams interact and communicate together in a relaxed and casual working environment.

E Fact: IPE and Stratcom rack up industry awards every year. In the past 12 years we’ve been recognized 76 times for our superior client work.
