Europay International announced the opening of its first automated teller machines in Belarus.

In the capital of Minsk, two machines, beside Belvnesheconombank, are open to all Eurocard and MasterCard-Cirrus cardholders.

Europay said ATM availability is following the same trend in payment system modernization that included Belvnesheconombank's introduction of Eurocard-MasterCard cards in June.

"We expect to see a rapid evolution in Belarus, with expansion in both the issuing and acquiring sides of the (card) business," said Carine Janssens, Europay's business development manager for Eastern Europe.
