Lai Pei-Si, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SCB Brunei was on hand to welcome guests, alongside other senior and relationship managers.
The event was also attended by Lalit Parsad, the Acting High Commissioner of India to Brunei.
“In Brunei, the contribution made by the Indian community within the aspects of social responsibility and the business community speak for itself,” said Lai Pei-Si.
“The celebration of Deepavali signifies the triumph of good over evil, light over dark, and provides a great opportunity for families and friends to get together.
“As such, it gives me great pleasure to wish the Indian Hindu community a very happy Deepavali.”
