Bandar Seri Begawan, 14 September 2012. Baiduri Bank recently embarked on a project to landscape a vacant piece of land and transform it into a garden as a gift to the people of Brunei in support of the Government’s “Bandar Seri Begawan City in the Garden” green initiative.

Accompanied by Baiduri Bank’s CEO, Pierre Imhof, the guest of honour, Awang Haji Ismail bin Haji Abd. Manaf, Deputy Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Home Affairs, cut a green ribbon to signify the official opening of the garden. Prior to cutting the ribbon, Awang Haji Ismail led guests in prayers to bless the new garden.

The guest of honour then formally launched a newly erected signboard that displayed a warning on littering and the penalties that will be imposed on offenders.

The visitors were then taken on a tour of the garden, led by Pierre Imhof.

The garden is on a piece of land belonging to the Government of Brunei located between the Hassanal Bolkiah Highway and Baiduri Bank’s Head Office in Kiarong. Besides furnishing a wide variety of plants, the garden also has a paved path where visitors can take walks and a gazebo complete with garden furniture. Solar-powered garden lights and trash bins have also been provided for the convenience of visitors.

Commenting on Baiduri’s green project, Mr Pierre Imhof said, “Baiduri Bank has always actively participated in community projects, and this garden is one of them. For this garden, we have taken care to select plants that are weather sustainable and can withstand going without water a few days. This is so that we will not have to resort to constant watering thus helping conserve water. We have also chosen solar-powered garden lights in order to conserve energy.” He went on to pledged Baiduri’s commitment to continue maintaining the garden.

“The public is welcome to enjoy our garden facilities”, Mr Imhof said, adding, “but I hope that they will do their part in keeping the facilities in good order and dispose of trash in the proper manner”.

Accompanying Awang Haji Ismail were the Chairman of the Municipal Department, Pengiran Hj Abd Rahman bin PSI Pg Hj Ismail and senior officials from the Municipal Department.

Also present at today’s event was Mr. Ti Eng Hui, Deputy General Manager, Retail Banking and Branch Network; Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Hj Mustapha, Senior Manager Treasury; Veronica Chong, Senior Manager, Human Resources and Finance Division and Ms. Dorothy Newn, Head of Corporate Communications and Marketing and staff of Baiduri Bank Group.

The “Bandar Seri Begawan City in the Garden” Campaign is an initiative by the Bandar Seri Begawan Municipal Department with the objective to portray Bandar Seri Begawan as a green and clean city.
