BUKIT LANJAN: Bank Rakyat goes for Hari Raya Open House record, forging national unity and harmony
In turbulent economic times like today, corporate companies can do much to help forge national unity and harmony.
They should not be thinking of only profits but display some corporate responsibility to help the rakyat dan negara (people and country) to unite as one for nation-building.
In this respect, Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff praised Bank Rakyat for staging a nationwide Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Open House at all its 147 branches today (Tuesday June 11, 2017).
“Invited guests and Bank Rakyat account holders attended the multi-racial muti-religious gathering of Malaysians. I was invited by Bank Rakyat’s branch in Glo Damansara,” he added.
Syed Razak said the nationwide simultaneously-staged Open House effort to bring Malaysians together should be emulated by all corporations.
“Don’t just think of business and profits. Corporate social responsibility is equally important to enhance business environment.
“A country’s socio-economic stability is key to national progress. And socio-economic progress benefits everyone and country,” he added.
“I wish Bank Rakyat and its Glo Damansara branch every success,” he added.
Bank Rakyat was established on Sept 28, 1954, under the Cooperative Ordinance 1948 (known as the Cooperative Societies Act 1993).
Today, it is the biggest Islamic cooperative bank in Malaysia with assets totaling RM92.29 billion as at end of December 2015.
