Bandar Seri Begawan, Wednesday, 8th April 2009 - In line with its business expansion, Baiduri Bank's Seria Branch recently relocated to new premises in order to serve its growing customers better.  The official opening took place this morning.

Yang Mulia Dato Paduka Haji Hamdillah Bin Haji Abdul Wahab, Deputy Minister at the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources was the Guest of Honour at the event.  With the strike of the gong, he officially opened the branch.  This was followed by a short drum performance by students of the Chung Ching Middle School, Seria.

In his welcome remarks earlier, Mr Pierre Imhof, General Manager of Baiduri Bank stated that the upgrading of the Seria Branch is part of an ongoing large-scale project being undertaken by the Baiduri Bank Group to upgrade facilities and premises.

Speaking briefly on the history of the branch, he said that since the branch opened its doors 8 years ago at its original location, it has significantly grown its customer base, thanks to the tremendous support from customers and the bank’s dedicated staff from Seria.  In addition, increasing demand for products and services has made it necessary for the bank to look for alternative premises in order to maintain the highest quality of service to its customers.

Mr Imhof said further, "We are strengthening facilities and services at this branch as we see Seria Town as the heart of commercial activity in the Belait District.  With its proximity to the Sugai Liang Industrial Park, widely regarded as the fastest growing industrial site in Brunei, and with increasing activity from the oil and gas industry, we believe Seria is the place to be in today."

"We see great opportunity for aspiring SME's to tie up with contractors to reap spin-offs generated by the many activities and to participate in the supply chain process.  And in line with one of our corporate objectives to nurture Brunei SME’s, Baiduri Bank is here to provide you the support you need for growing your business".

Following the launch, guests were taken on a tour of the new premises.  They also had the opportunity to join a dialogue session with the guest of honour, Dato Paduka Haji Hamdillah on topics relating to SME's in Brunei.

Occupying a two-storey shop lot fronting Jalan Sultan Omar Ali, the new Baiduri Bank Seria Branch takes on an ultra modern look.  The banking hall occupies the ground floor, while a new Prestige Centre is located on the first floor.

The Prestige Centre offers exclusive and personalized service to Prestige customers in the comfort of a lounge equipped with coffee making facilities, internet kiosk and televised investment news from around the world.

The branch boasts a staff force of eleven, which includes two personal financial planners providing free consultation to customers on wealth management.

Guests at the mid-morning event included senior officials from the government, Brunei Shell Group, customers and business associates.  Also in attendance were Mr Raymond Bariou, Senior Deputy General Manager and other senior executives of the Bank.  Some 200 guests were present.

To commemorate the opening of the Branch, Baiduri Bank is offering some great offers which are valid only at the Seria Branch until 30th April 2009.  These offers include loans and facilities, card products, wealth management products and Prestige membership sign-ups.  The public can contact or visit the branch to find out more.
