The tour is designed to recover lost jobs from the economic recession, keep pace with population growth and labor-market dynamics and help grow wages and incomes for middle-class workers.

It also emphasizes international trade.

Only four cities will be apart of the tour. It starts in Atlanta and ends in Mexico City. The tour goes from March to November 2013, with a two day stop in Denver on June 25 to 26.

JPMorgan Chase representative Todd Munson stopped by 9NEWS to explain the significance of Denver hosting the event.

"This is a huge deal for us. Obviously we have 2000 employees in the Colorado market place all along the Front Range and this is an important business community for us and our million plus community all throughout Colorado. We want to help them expand their businesses into the global market," Munson said.

Nate Chisholm contributed to this report.
