Weaker yen set to boost profits

Japan's earnings season is underway and attention will be focused on how a weaker yen is helping the country's exporters.

More than half of the country's listed firms are exporters so they should benefit from a drop in the value of the yen making their products more attractive to foreign buyers.

Since mid-November last year, the Japanese currency has fallen by more than 10%.

Rico Hizon asked Martin Schulz of Fujitsu Research Institute whether these declines would last, and how exporters are benefitting.
