Business leaders rounded off this year's World Economic Forum with a call to make sure the poor benefit more from any global economic revival.

Executives at the annual meeting of the global elite in Davos said growth needs to be "inclusive" or the world will experience more of the unrest seen in Tunisia and Egypt. NGOs have been lobbying business leaders to be more responsible or face greater regulation. The rising cost of food was cited as a concern by many of the Forum's 2,500 attendees this year.
