Report summary

We expect sustained weakness in the yen over the short term as Japan's quantitative easing programme takes effect. Persistent current account deficits will also put downward pressure on the currency. Although lower oil prices will help to lower Japan's overall import bill Japan's exports have not improved significantly despite the weak yen.
