Surprise meeting between Alexander De Croo and the wealthy Elon Musk in Norway

Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo met this Monday evening in Stavanger (Norway) with the founder of the American companies Tesla and SpaceX, the wealthy businessman Elon Musk, the Belga agency learned.

This meeting, which was not on Mr De Croo’s programme, took place on the sidelines of the Offshore Northern Seas Conference (ONS), an international conference devoted to energy and which brings together political figures, heads of business, opinion leaders and academics around themes concerning this sector.

The head of the federal government was hardly talkative at the end of the interview. “It was interesting”, he said. Mr. De Croo had pleaded earlier in the day for the fixing of a European price cap for natural gas, while Mr. Musk notably said he was in favor of the continuation of the activities of nuclear power plants.
