NUSA DUA, Indonesia (Reuters) – Billionaire Elon Musk said on Monday he was working “at the absolute most amount…from morning til night, seven days a week” when asked about his recent acquisition of Twitter and his leadership of automaker Tesla (NASDAQ:) Inc.
“I have too much work on my plate that is for sure,” Musk said by videolink to a business conference on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali.
Musk, who is chief executive of both companies, appeared lit by candles, wearing a batik shirt sent by the organisers and said he was speaking from a place that had just lost power.
The question of whether Tesla will suffer because Musk is preoccupied with Twitter has become a focus for investors and analysts.
Indonesia has been trying to secure a deal with Tesla on battery investment and potentially for Elon Musk’s SpaceX aerospace company to develop a rocket launch site.
Musk made no commitment to either of those but said Indonesia had a large role to play in the electric vehicle supply chain and that it would make sense “long term” for SpaceX to have multiple launch points around the globe.
