The U.S. Treasury Department plans to meet with market-makers and other electronic trading firms to discuss ways to bring more transparency to the $14.5 trillion market for government debt.

U.S. officials are seeking industry feedback on how to publicly report prices for Treasury bonds for the first time, according to a person familiar with the matter. Meetings will be held with New York-based firms this week and Chicago traders next week, said the person, who asked not be identified because the information is private. This follows conversations with the 23 primary banks and brokers that buy and sell U.S. debt directly from the government, said a different person familiar with the matter.
