How to use instance in a sentence?

  1. Ewald Nowotny:

    There is always a lot of noise in such a situation and I think the important point is to distinguish the noise from the facts, for us, it is quite clear that we have certain conditions to be met. The one condition is ... whether we can accept for instance Greek assets, Greek bonds, as collateral. The answer is, for the time being: No.
