TAIPEI -- MasterCard International Inc. expects its worldwide credit card sales to rise about 27% in 1994, to $400 billion, boosted by surging demand in the Asia-Pacific region, says the card association's president and chief executive, H. Eugene Lockhart.

In an interview during the MasterCard Asia/Pacific annual meeting this week, Mr. Lockhart said MasterCard sales in Taiwan alone should surpass $500 million in 1994, up 71% from $293 million in 1993.
