Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister is headed to the US on a four-day tour and the first stop is Chicago, Illinois.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff did not specify why the company chose Canada but he said, "We know we'll be able to have a great business environment in Canada".

CEO of consultancy company MetaVRse highlighted last week during a discussion about the future of augmented and virtual reality industries in Canada that only homegrown investors can keep the profits in AR and VR industries from seeping across the border.

On Friday, Trudeau met separately with Gov.

USA business software developer Salesforce.com Inc (CRM.N) will pump $2 billion into its Canadian business over the next five years, it said on Thursday, the latest major US technology investment across the border since early 2017.

Trudeau was also set to visit the offices of Silicon Valley technology company AppDirect, which announced it will create at least 300 jobs in Canada within the next five years as part of a global growth strategy.

In the meeting between Brown and Trudeau, the two pledged to expand cooperation on climate action, trade and criminal justice reform, issues in which both California and Canada have emerged as leaders.

Little place for arms management in Trump's nuclear technique
According to SIPRI data, Russian Federation has 7,000 nuclear weapons while the United States follows closely with 6,800. The initial report said $1.2 trillion would be needed to upgrade and modernize America's nuclear arsenal.

Uncertainty over Trump's immigration policies has provided momentum for Trudeau's economic pitch to Silicon Valley, where many companies that rely on foreign workers have become uneasy over increasing scrutiny on the H1-B work visa program. "We have to make sure we are sharing the benefits of trade and the opportunities that come with it with families".

Before the meeting with Jeff Bezos, Trudeau said the project would be a boon for any city's local economy.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday said his nation will not be pushed into any redo of the North American Free Trade Agreement that does not benefit Canada.

Trump called NAFTA a job-killing "disaster" on the campaign trail and has threatened to withdraw from it if he can't get what he wants.

A number of different USA know-how firms are increasing into their northern neighborhood.

Trudeau declined to talk about specifics Thursday, but said Canada wants an agreement that is "win-win-win" for all three countries.
