Description

Sin Po was a Chinese-Malay (Peranakan) publication that was first published as a weekly newspaper by young Peranakan Chinese in Jakarta on 1 October 1910. Sin Po became a daily newspaper in 1912 to meet increasing demand and shortly became one of the largest Malay newspapers in the Dutch East Indies. Sin Po Played a crucial role in promoting Chinese nationalism, taking a strong stance against Dutch colonialism, and developing the Indonesian language and culture.
