TOKYO, March 31 (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) , the operator of Japan's wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant, will hold a news conference to discuss its corporate management plan at 6 p.m. (0900 GMT) on Monday, the company said.

Tepco, Asia's largest utility, has been struggling to shore up its finances as it faces the decade-long task of decommissioning Fukushima Daiichi, a nuclear plant in northeastern Japan that suffered triple meltdowns after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Tepco President Naomi Hirose and the company's new Chairman Fumio Sudo will speak at the conference at its headquarters in Tokyo. (Reporting by Kaori Kaneko and Mari Saito; Editing by Dominic Lau)
