WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit North Carolina for what's being described as "an event on the economy."

White House press secretary Jay Carney announced Thursday that Obama would travel to the Research Triangle area on Jan. 15. Carney said more details of the trip would be released in the next few days.

Obama made two visits to the state in 2013. Last June, he discussed plans to change the nation's classrooms into digital learning centers during a visit to the Charlotte area.

Last February, Obama followed his State of the Union address with a stop in the Asheville area to tour a local auto parts plant which he used as an example of the nation's economic resurgence.
