An administration official has confirmed that President Barack Obama will visit Chrysler’s plant in Toledo next week. On Tuesday, Chrysler repaid its loans to the United States and Canadian government six years ahead of schedule.

Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson said that Obama wants to personally congratulate Chrysler and its employees.

“We are expecting a visit from President Obama next week and we are happy to have him,” Tinson said.

She said that the details of the visit are still being planned out. Fiat has increased its ownership in Chrysler from 30 percent to 46 percent.
