KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

President Barack Obama is planning a visit to Claycomo this week, the White House announced Sunday.

Obama will travel to the Ford Motor Co. assembly plant on Friday where he will highlight the recovery of the auto industry.

The visit is part of a weeklong effort to draw attention to the economic recovery five years after the Lehman Brothers collapse.

In his speech, he will also detail the work that lies ahead to continue strengthening the economy.

Obama's last visit to Missouri was a July 24 stop at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.

Obama used the visit to praise a new program that fast-tracks students to low-cost college degrees as he kicked off a traveling tour intended to emphasize his economic initiatives.

The White House said more details will be released when they become available.
