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.
