The Japanese are busily adding another product to their long list of successful exports--money, billions of dollars of it. A wave of Japanese cash moved through the banking halls of Frankfurt, London, New York and Zurich, and made 1984 a record-breaking year for Tokyo bankers. The city's Marunouchi banking district saw the biggest yen loan ever in 1984 when the Canadian government arranged a borrowing of $490 million in July.

Japan Trade Surplus Plunges More Than 50%: Analysts said the gap is likely to continue to shrink as reconstruction after last month's earthquake sucks in imports. "A recovery of the economy is also causing imports to rise," said economist Hidehiro Iwaki at Nomura Research Institute. Furthermore, the high yen was stimulating cheap imports, particularly from Asia, he added. The trade surplus fell to $2.88 billion in January from $6.03 billion a year earlier.

Surging imports pushed Japan's trade surplus down 90% in January, its sharpest decline in five years, but the gap with the United States showed less dramatic improvement.

The decline marks the ninth straight monthly narrowing of the surplus.

Brisk imports helped trim Japan's surplus in trade of goods and services in June by more than $1 billion from the same month last year and should keep slicing the surplus in coming months, economists said. Japan's June current account surplus, announced on Friday, tumbled to $6.43 billion from $7.50 billion a year earlier. In May, the surplus was $5.79 billion. "The trend looks definitely good," said economist Hidehiro Iwai of Nomura Research Institute.
