BEIJING, July 14 (Reuters) – U.S. automaker Tesla Inc has met with officials from a district in the city of Chongqing in southwestern China to discuss “accelerating projects”, the Liangjiang New Area said on Tuesday.
Officials met Tesla Vice-president Tao Lin to discuss “accelerating projects”, Chongqing’s Liangjiang New Area said in a Wechat social media post.
It said government official Duan Chenggang welcomed Tao’s visit to “promote cooperation”, without providing further details.
The official China Securities Journal newspaper, citing unidentified sources, said cooperation could involve the establishment of sales and maintenance centres rather than factories.
