Malaysia's Bank Islam still enamored with Indonesian market

Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd still has its eyes set on expanding in Indonesia.


It is exploring the possibility of strategic tie-ups with bigger networks rather than on acquiring a smaller bank.

Its managing director, Datuk Seri Zukri Samat, said BIMB was currently in preliminary discussion with shareholders.
