BEIJING, May 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang met with Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday in Beijing.
Noting that Chinese modernization will create unprecedented growth potential and market demand, Qin said China's new-energy vehicle industry has broad prospects.
China will continue to advance opening-up at a high level and create a better market-oriented, law-based, and international business environment for Tesla and other foreign companies, said Qin.
Qin said a healthy, stable, and constructive China-U.S. relationship is in the interests of both countries and the world at large, adding that such a relationship is only possible when the two sides adhere to the right direction of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation, avoid "dangerous driving," and "step on the gas" to promote mutually beneficial cooperation.
The United States and China share intertwined and inseparable interests, Musk said, adding that Tesla opposes decoupling and is willing to continue to expand its business in China and share the country's development opportunities.
