We remain committed to enhance convenience for our customers through our continuous branch network expansion which has driven BMI Bank's growth in recent years in terms of offering value-added banking services with easy access to the local community. We would like to thank the Central Bank of Bahrain and our stakeholders for their constant support and cooperation to the bank."
