A: Well, Mr. Brown, we’ve settled everything in connection with this transaction except the question of payment in yen. Now can you explain to me how to make payment in yen?
B: Many of our business friends in England, France, Switzerland, Italy and G.mp3any are paying for our exports in Japan currency. It is quite easy to do so.
A: I know some of them are doing that. But this is new to me. I’ve never made payment in yen before. It is convenient to make pay- ment in pound sterling, but I may have some difficulty in making payment in yen.
B: Many banks in Europe now carry accounts in yen. They are in a position to open letters of credit and effect payment in yen. Con- sult your banks and you’ll see that they are ready to offer you this service.
A: Do you mean to say that I can open a letter of credit in yen with a bank in London or Bonn?
B: Sure you can. Several of the banks in London, such as the National Westminster Bank and Barclays Bank are in a position to open letters of credit in yen. They’ll do so against our sales conf.mp3ation or contract.
A: I see.
-- 布朗先生，除了日元付款问题外，我们已经谈妥了有关这笔交易 的所有事项。现在，能不能请你解释一下如何用日元付款？
-- 我们在英国、法国、瑞士、意大利及德国的许多商界朋友都用日元 支付我们的出口货物。这很容易做到。
-- 现在欧洲许多银行都可以开立日元账户。他们可以开立信用证并且 用日元支付。你去银行咨询就可知道，他们会替你办理这项业务的。
-- 当然可以。在伦敦有好几家银行，如国家威斯敏斯特银行和巴克 莱银行等都可以凭我们的销售确认书或合同开立日元信用证。
