Founded in 1981, The Indian Ocean Newsletter covers the political and economic news of African countries of the Indian Ocean region: Horn of Africa, East Africa, Southern Africa, and the Islands.

The newsletter is published every other Saturday for a total of 23 issues per year. Subscription plans are available for both online and print editions.

Due to its independence and reliability of its news, The Indian Ocean Newsletter has become the standard-setting publication for political & business decision-makers in a region of the world where information is often hard to come by.

Politics and government - The public and the behind-the-scenes dealings between the powerful figures of governments and international organizations.

Business & Inner Circles - A close watch on business leaders and the companies operating in the Indian Ocean area: contracts, negotiations, partnerships, acquisitions and the like.

Who's Who - Exclusive biographies of men and women who make the political and economic news.

The Indian Ocean Newsletter is based on a Fortnightly basis.
