SANTIAGO, April 28 (Reuters) - Chile's Codelco, the world's leading copper producer, may issue debt this year depending on market conditions, Chairman Oscar Landerretche said on Tuesday.

The state-run miner, which has launched a five-year, $25 billion investment plan, is partly capitalized by the Chilean government, but also finances itself by occasionally tapping debt markets.

Its debt is rated A+ by Fitch Ratings and AA- by Standard & Poor's.
