Elon Musk Spotted Eating Hot Pot in Beijing, Offered Chinese Green Card

The billionaire 74 indirectly owns 3 million Tesla shares

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has offered billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk a residence permit, the website of China's State Council, the country's chief administrative authority, confirmed on its website.

"I hope to build Tesla's Shanghai factory into a global example", Musk told Li, according to a readout.

USA electric carmaker Tesla Inc. on Monday broke new ground with its Shanghai factory, becoming the first to benefit from a new policy allowing foreign carmakers to set up wholly-owned subsidiaries in China. However, Chinese green cards are notoriously hard to obtain. This prompted the Securities and Exchange Commission to order greater board oversight, which said that this and other claims by him were false and misleading and affected Tesla's stock.

Tesla's press office didn't immediately respond to an e-mail requesting comment on Ellison's holding.

If he really does receive his Chinese green card, Musk will join the likes of Nobel Prize-winning chemist Kurt Wuethrich, Nobel Prize-winning chemist Feringa Bernard Lucas, and, of course, basketball star Stephon Marbury. Getting a Chinese "green card" has been described as "one of the most hard tasks in the world". In contrast, more than 1 million people were granted permanent residency in the USA during 2017. The meeting followed Musk's visit to Tesla's Gigafactory 3 project in Shanghai, the company's first production base outside of the US. Domestic and foreign automakers have been racing to grab shares of China's electric-vehicle sector - already the world's biggest and expected to continue to grow as the government pushes clean technologies.
