and where are they going. well oil prices are marginally up and but they're still well below the highs the six month highs that they saw last week following the announcement that the waivers will not be extended having said that experts tell me that they don't expect the oil prices to go through the roof as many of fearing because of two main factors and one is because the foresee china and india continue to buy oil from iran using some of the barrel payment mechanism and the other they feel that there is enough spare production capacity considering that major oil producers are producing oil below the output into a deal with opec countries and other major oil producers including russia i think what's really interesting here is to hear the u.s. president tell opec it should start raising output to soften the impact of his

4:50 pm
forget. anytime soon. to see. other businesses are also looking to cash in on like this stamp maker in the new era which means beautiful harmony people will purchase products like calendars and letter paper bearing the new stamps. experts expect private consumption to rise by over seven point five percent during the ten days of the celebrations. which is. the office because more things are going digital the hunt goes stamp business hasn't been doing so well in the last few years but we see this is a business opportunity and i think the change to the new era is a good thing. breaks known as the golden week holidays take place every year but this year due to the enthronement they've been extended to ten days and many people will have the entire time off work the country's biggest travel agency says
4:51 pm
a record twenty five million japanese are expected to travel during the period and that will benefit hotels restaurants trains and many other service industries. in march there was talk of an impending recession but experts are now saying the celebrations could well drive up economic growth by a quarter of a point in the second quarter and manufacturers don't seem worried either carmaker toyota said its plants would remain closed for nine days not everyone's excited about the party though even the stock exchanges are closing and some traders worry the shutdown will have an impact on the yen. let's talk about the economic impact with kyodo actions and a lot of reporting for us from japan grew up there and was there just recently as well how important are these celebrations to the japanese that we are we talking about the equivalent of the british royals here or the japanese royals even bigger . i would really in this series say the royals are bigger they're less of
4:52 pm
a deal there but the era change is a huge deal. i've only been i've only known to his share of the current era actually it doesn't happen that often and also the thing is usually if an area changes it's because an imprint this is very solemn and also very sudden affair but here people have been able. to prepare for the last more than two years and it's a big party for the nation basically so obviously you're younger than two hundred years old how does all of this and these celebrations translate into going how does it translate into business for japan it. well as we have seen in the piece beforehand a lot of it was because people still want to purchase things in the history era and also the whole golden weeks thing is a huge deal right now for the economy because japanese people never get time off for ten days on just you know one piece and that was
4:53 pm
a big deal but also the thing is that small businesses as well as big businesses are jumping on the idea of also the new areas bandwagon selling special edition there was even a story on one company who has a canned air of his says the current era and is going to sell it which is just completely crazy but they make a lot of money doing that japanese and they're hard workers tell me about their purchasing power because are they going to be able to keep this op is just going to be a temporary spike that we see for an economy that's otherwise in a bit of trouble well the problem here is really just because you have a ten day holiday just because. it doesn't mean that you all of sudden have more money in a pocket so for example these ten day holidays that's a lot of money that's been spent if you're family and you're going to hawaii for a week and you're spending a fortune on it which you definitely are you going to be careful about what you're going to buy afterwords for the rest of the year so

a lot of the experts there are quite scared that after this hike that there's going to be a dip in the economy same thing happened after the tax hike actually two thousand and fourteen consumption tax hike everybody was really happy about people buying lots of stuff and then for the end of the year just the economy tanked so tell me on that note how is japan holding onto its position as the worlds. top economy considering all of these changes it's going through it's trying to hold on to so many traditions and yet it's going digital and it is a high tech nation is also an aging population the problem there really. people don't really realize how big japan is as an economy they've been actually i looked this up and even i was really surprised well they've been studying this that they were the second biggest economy from nine hundred seventy up to two thousand and ten well meaning that they are stagnating they are having their problems but on a very high level meaning that's why they've been able to keep this status for this
