Bandar Seri Begawan, 30 July 2016 – In celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the Baiduri Bank Group hosted their annual Malam Silaturrahim at the Indera Samudra Grand Hall at the Empire Hotel and Country Club.

With the theme, Salam Aidilfitri, guests were greeted with warm smiles to the accompaniment of festive music as they entered the Indera Samudra Grand Hall in their traditional cara melayu and baju kurung. The night was held to bring together the various Baiduri Bank customers, business partners and associates from around the country in the spirit of silaturrahim.

Present as the Guest of Honour for the event was Dr Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Muda Abdul Fattaah Ibni Duli Yang Teramat Mulia Paduka Seri Pengiran Perdana Wazir Sahibul Himmah Wal-Waqar Pengiran Muda Mohamed Bolkiah, a member of the Board of Directors at Baiduri Bank.

In his welcome address, Mr. Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank expressed his thanks and appreciation to the guests for their continuous support over the years which have led to the Bank becoming the multi-award winning Bank that it is today.

"Last year, we received five major banking awards and recognitions. Since the beginning of this year, we have received three more major awards – the Domestic Retail Bank for Brunei from the Asian Banking and Finance magazine, the Best Banking Group for Brunei from World Finance and the World’s Best Emerging Markets Bank in Asia-Pacific for Brunei from Global Finance. We hope to receive a few more by the end of the year."

When speaking on the future outlook of the Bank, Mr. Imhof said that despite the challenging economic environment, he believes there are many opportunities for businesses and for the Group to grow as Brunei intensifies economic diversification and local business development.

Further elaborating on the future of the Bank, Mr. Imhof spoke on the development of the new head office which is expected to be completed in 2017. He further added that there are plans to relocate some of the Bank’s branches to bigger premises.

"As some of you may already know, we have moved our Tutong branch to larger premises at the Petani Mall. We also have plans to relocate our Serusop branch by 2017."

This was followed by a video presentation on the Group’s highlights over the past year and a presentation of the token of appreciation to the Guest of Honour by the CEO of Baiduri Bank.
