EU's von der Leyen and Biden agree on clean tech dialog

STORY: Describing her meeting with Biden as "very good," von der Leyen said they agreed to work on giving EU-sourced critical raw materials access to the U.S. market.

Von der Leyen said the European Union welcomed the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act because it provides a massive investment in the green energy transition.

The two leaders met against a backdrop of European complaints that clean energy subsidies in the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act and others will divert investment away from Europe and hurt their economies.
