He said last year's results are expected to be the bank's best performance since it was established 31 years ago, adding that details of the financial results will only be officially announced by the end of the month.
This year, Zukri expects a sluggish trend in consumer banking as the consumer confidence index has dropped.
"Our strength is in consumer banking, which makes up 75 per cent of our business. To make up for this, we will focus on commercial and corporate banking this year.
"We hope to achieve a 70:30 ratio between consumer and corporate banking by the end of the year," he said after the opening of Bank Islam's 134th branch by Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob in Padang Garong, here, yesterday.
Zukri said the bank will continue with its expansion plan this year, with new branches to be unveiled in Wakaf Baru here;
"Our target is to have 150 branches nationwide by next year. We will open a new Ar-Rahnu branch this year in Kuala Terengganu,
