How big of a factor is the weak yen in supporting Japanese auto exports?

0

The Japanese government’s policy is to stimulate Japan’s economy via export growth. Thanks to the weak yen, more than half (52%) of all automobiles manufactured in Japan in 2006 were produced for export to other countries, exceeding 50% for the first time in 19 years. In fact, even as demand within Japan for new autos declines, Japanese companies are adding production capacity to Japan-based facilities, reactivating assembly lines, adding workers and postponing planned factory closures as they move to export ever greater numbers of vehicles.
