Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. President Barack Obama said he plans to propose measures next week aimed at increasing factory employment, fostering the development of energy and ensuring that “everybody plays by the same set of rules.”

In a video message to supporters today, Obama offered a preview of what he intends to outline in his annual State of the Union address to Congress next week. The speech will lay out his priorities during a year when he is running for re-election.

The president didn’t offer any specifics today in his video. He said he’ll outline plans to create “more good jobs” at U.S. manufacturers, foster energy development, and rebuild “an economy where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and an America where everybody gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everybody plays by the same set of rules.”

“I’m going to talk about how we’ll get there,” Obama said. “I’m going to lay out a blueprint for an American economy that’s built to last.”
