Japan's Abe to launch panel to mull stimulus package - Nikkei

TOKYO, March 18 (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will kick off a panel consisting of key economic ministers and Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda to discuss measures to prop up the economy, the Nikkei economic daily reported on Wednesday.

The panel, to be held almost daily from Thursday, will summon private economists and corporate executives to hear their views on what steps could be desirable to mitigate the hit to the economy from the coronavirus outbreak, the paper said.
