Seria, 28 February 2014 – In celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year for 2014, Baiduri Bank Group today hosted a sumptuous dinner for their customers and business partners who are based in Seria and Kuala Belait. The event was held at the Pusat Insani Community Hall in Seria where almost 500 guests attended.

The evening opened with a traditional acrobatic performance followed by a welcome address by Mr. Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank, where he thanked guests for their support and confidence in Baiduri Bank and highlighted the major progresses and achievements of Baiduri Bank Group during the past year.

"It is our endless efforts in pushing ourselves to perform better and better each year that have continued to earn us international recognition. In 2013, we received 3 major banking awards – the Domestic Retail Bank for Brunei 2013 for the first time ever from the Asian Banking and Finance Magazine, the Best Banking Group for Brunei 2013 for the fifth time from World Finance, and the Strongest Bank Balance Sheet for Brunei 2013 from The Asian Banker Magazine," said Mr. Imhof.

"Despite 2013 being a challenging year for the banking industry, Baiduri Bank Group has performed remarkably well and should announce strong financial results after the AGM. The Strongest Bank Balance Sheet Award therefore is an important achievement as it is an endorsement of the group's strong financial strength, derived from the sustainable recurring income from our business model despite the challenges faced," added Mr. Imhof.

Five schools from the Belait District received donations from Baiduri Bank for the purpose of providing financial assistance to underprivileged students in their schools. The donations were presented by Mr. Imhof and were received by Ms. Chea Wann Ching, Principal, St. Angela's Convent School; Mr. Koh Hong Puah, Principal, St. Margaret's School; Mr. Loo Kuan Lein, acting Principal, Chung Ching Middle School; Ms. Hong Geok Cheng, Principal, Chung Hua Middle School; and Mr. Gary Young, Chairman of Board of Governors, St. John's School.

A spectacular line up of local artistes – singer and songwriter Maria Grace Koh; Brunei's teenage singing sensation Anabelle Voo; comedia and actor Kevin Lo; magician Nadzri Harif; and comedian, actress, author, producer and scriptwriter Rachael Malai Ali kept guests entertained throughout dinner.

Also in attendance at today's dinner were the management committee and senior executives of the Group. Another event will be held in Bandar Seri Begawan tomorrow for customers in the Brunei-Muara and Tutong Districts.
