Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is considering increasing energy imports from the United States as he prepares to meet President Donald Trump, who has complained about Japan's trade surplus, two sources familiar with the plan said.

The government is putting together a package of plans for Japanese companies to invest in infrastructure and job-creation projects in the United States for Abe to take to the Feb. 10 summit with Trump in Washington.

Another idea is to offer to increase liquid natural gas imports from the U.S., a source in the ruling coalition said.
