BNE IntelliNews was created in 2014 with the merger of Business New Europe and Emerging Markets Direct. Bne IntelliNews is part of the UK-based New Sparta Holdings. It is the only English-language publication covering the more than 30 countries in Emerging Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States through a variety of digital and print products. Employing a network of experienced correspondents throughout the region, bne IntelliNews acts as an “intelligent filter” offering fast, timely, highly specialised political and business news and analysis, answering not just the “what” but also the “why.” The intention is to provide pragmatic and actionable information for investors and companies working in or with the region that will help them with their business. bne IntelliNews subscribers learn what’s happening in these regions long before the mainstream media reports on it.
