Typhoon Haiyan: Business still reeling

9 December 2013 Last updated at 02:25 GMT

Tacloban used to be one of the Philippines' biggest economic hubs.

But now it lies mostly in ruins after being hit last month by one of the most powerful storms to have ever made landfall, Typhoon Haiyan.

Most business were damaged by the extreme weather but there was also a breakdown of security and many firms were looted.

Since then security has improved, but the business community is still cautious and less than a third of businessmen have returned to the city.

The BBC's Rico Hizon visited the city one month after the typhoon.
