Japan advisory panel on fiscal, debt policy held final meeting - govt official

TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese finance ministry panel consisting of academics and corporate executives that has offered long-term proposals on fixing the country's finances held its final meeting on Thursday, a finance ministry official said.

The official also said a new forum to discuss the country's finances would be set up in the future that would take the place of the panel, which met about twice a year to debate Japan's fiscal policy and long-term debt issuance plans.
