Bandar Seri Begawan, 26 February 2016. In celebrating the 2016 Chinese New Year, over 500 invited guests from Seria and Kuala Belait attended the dinner reception hosted by the Baiduri Bank Group at Pusat Insani, Seria.

It was a night of music and splendour as guests were greeted at the entrance of the hall. Local musicians from Expression Music entertained the guests at the entrance as they were ushered into the hall adorned with festive decorations.

A dance number entitled "Spring" performed by Chung Hua Middle School students signaled the start of the event. This was followed by the welcoming address by Mr. Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank, where he expressed his thanks and appreciation to the guests for their unwavering support over the years.

 "Last year we received five major banking awards – the Domestic Retail Bank for Brunei and the Mobile Banking Initiative of the Year for Brunei from the Asian Banking and Finance Magazine; the Best Banking Group for Brunei from World Finance; the Bank of the Year Brunei from The Banker magazine; and Brunei's Safest Bank 2015 from Global Finance."

Further elaborating on the future of the Bank, Mr. Imhof spoke on the development of the new head office. "[because] we believe in the future of the financial industry of Brunei despite the ever challenging environment, we purchased an existing commercial site in Bandar which is currently being redeveloped to house our new head office. We expect it to be completed in 2017."  He further added that there are plans to relocate the Serusop, Kiulap and Tutong branches to bigger premises.

Also during the dinner, 5 schools received donations from the Baiduri Bank Group as financial assistance for the underprivileged students at the schools.

The donations were presented by Mr. Pierre Imhof.

During the dinner, guests were treated to a variety of performances which included violinists, pianists, dancers, vocalists and martial arts demonstrations by Expression Music students and students from the various schools in the KB district. The evening concluded with a lucky draw, where 3 lucky guests walked away with an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6S Plus, and a Samsung Galaxy Edge+ smartphone. The prizes were presented by Mr. Pierre Imhof.
