Romanian Commercial Bank, the largest bank in Romania, and a Europay International Member for the past six months, has issued the country's first electronic debit cards.

The BCR Maestro Card offers electronic point of sale services via edc/Maestro and automated teller machine services through the Eurocheque Pictogram and Cirrus brands. All BCR Maestro card transactions will be on- line and will use personal identification number security.

The Romanian financial institution will also launch Bancomat 24, the first ATM network in Romania. Fifty ATMs should be deployed by this summer, said Europay International, including one at Otopeni, the international airport.
