WASHINGTON -- U.S. businesses are seeking a comprehensive trade deal with Japan that also includes services and investments even as Tokyo tries to limit the scope of upcoming bilateral talks to goods only.

American industries had one month through Tuesday to submit written comments to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative regarding a trade deal with Japan. The office will hold public hearings on the subject Dec. 10 and draft a list of priorities by 30 days before negotiations begin, possibly as early as January.
