Kuala Belait, 14 October 2014 – The Baiduri Bank Group celebrated the official re-launching of its recently renovated branch in Kuala Belait today. The new branch, which also houses the second branch of Baiduri Finance – the nation’s leading finance company, is aimed to cater to the increasing number of customers in and around the district. Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Indera Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Suyoi bin Haji Osman inaugurated the new Baiduri Bank and Baiduri Finance branch in Kuala Belait at a ceremony held on the Bank's premises.
