BREAKING: Elon Musk Meets Up With Chinese Foreign Minister

CEO of Tesla and Twitter Elon Musk met up with Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang in Beijing on early Tuesday morning.

Musk was in Beijing to talk about Tesla’s expansion in China.

In April Musk announced Tesla’s plan to open up a factory in Shanghai.

The last time Musk was in China for business was over three years ago.

Insider Paper broke the story:

Tesla’s Elon Musk met China’s foreign minister Qin Gang in Beijing on Tuesday, the Chinese ministry said in a statement.

Qin told Musk China was “committed to creating a better market-oriented, rule-of-law-based and internationalised business environment” for foreign enterprises, according to the statement.

Musk’s visit is the first to China since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

His electric vehicle company announced in April it would build a new battery factory in Shanghai.

The plant will be Tesla’s second factory in the financial hub after its massive Gigafactory, which broke ground in 2019.

Musk’s ties to China have raised eyebrows in Washington, with US President Joe Biden saying in November the executive’s links to foreign countries were “worthy” of scrutiny.

Check out what Yahoo News reported:

Elon Musk landed in Beijing in what is the billionaire’s first visit to China in three years, and met with Foreign Minister Qin Gang.

Musk said Tesla Inc. is willing to keep expanding in the country, and he and Qin spoke about the merits of maintaining ties between China and the US, according to a government statement late Tuesday. Qin told Musk that China is committed to developing a good business environment for foreign companies, the statement said.
