Elon Musk: Tesla boss on first China trip in over three years

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk is in China, as he makes his first trip to the world's second largest economy in over three years. He arrived in Beijing on Tuesday and is also expected to visit Tesla's huge manufacturing plant in Shanghai. The multi-billionaire met China's foreign minister Qin Gang within hours of arriving in the country.

Mr Musk has not yet publicly commented on the trip, which comes amid tensions between the US and China. He also declined to make any comments about his plans for the trip when asked by reporters as he left a hotel in Beijing on Wednesday. Later on Wednesday, Mr Musk met China's industry minister Jin Zhuanglong and discussed the development of electric vehicles.
