Mizuho Resumes ATM, Online Banking Services

Economy

Tokyo, July 17 (Jiji Press)--Japan's Mizuho Bank resumed its automated teller machine and online banking services Tuesday morning after a three-day suspension.

The suspension was designed to smooth the way for data transfer work by the unit of Mizuho Financial Group Inc. <8411> to unify its core computing systems for banking operations.

The bank used the country's three-day weekend for the work. Monday was a national holiday.

Mizuho resumed the services at 8 a.m. Tuesday (11 p.m. Monday GMT).

The data transfer work was the second in a yearlong series of nine following the first in June. The latest work involved a transfer of transaction data for customers, mainly big companies.
