TOKYO -- The World Economic Forum on Wednesday called on businesses to help combat the new coronavirus pandemic, noting that the strength of any economic recovery will depend on their immediate response to the crisis. 

The Geneva-based body unveiled a set of "Stakeholder Principles," which urge the business community to help overcome the pandemic by ensuring the safety of their workers, maintaining supply chains, and keeping their prices fair.
