President Barack Obama will visit Intel Corp’s manufacturing facility in Chandler as part of his trip to Arizona and four other states this week.

The White House announced Monday that Obama will be in the Phoenix area for about three hours Wednesday afternoon.

He’ll likely talk about job creation and economic development, which are expected to be central themes in his annual address to the nation Tuesday evening.

The Arizona Republic says Intel is in the process of building a massive $5 billion project that the company has said will become the most advanced, high-volume chip-making plant in the world.

Obama’s visit will be his fifth trip to Arizona since he became president in January 2009.

He’s also scheduled to visit Iowa, Colorado, Nevada and Michigan between Wednesday and Friday.
