Elon Musk and Binance CZ's 'Meeting' with Xi Jinping at APEC Was a Mix-Up? CZ Clears the Air
Chinese President Xi Jinping graced the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit's American business dinner post-event, attracting a high-profile ensemble. Attendees ranged from U.S. President Joe Biden to tech giants Apple's Cook and Tesla's Musk, along with financial heavyweights Dalio and Fink.
