TOKYO, June 20 (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling party said on Thursday that it is aiming to reduce the country's corporate tax rate so that it is more in line with international levels.
The ruling Liberal Democratic Party also said it would implement appropriate debt management policy to maintain fiscal discipline and prevent a sharp decline in Japanese government bond prices.
The LDP made the proposals in a document on policy ahead of upper house elections expected on July 21.
