FRANKFURT nike air huarache premium femme , Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- The danger stemming from U.S. President Donald Trump's "America First" policy will push Germany and even Europe to expand their trade relations with prosperous regions in Asia, said an expert from German Council on Foreign Relations.

"Trump's 'America-First' policy has little attraction to U.S. allies in Asia and Europe to strengthen bilateral trade relations with the United States," Josef Braml said in an interview with Xinhua, against the backdrop of the recent U.S. trade protectionism move.

The expert added that global entrepreneurs need alternatives in case of more barriers which hinder the efforts to gain access to American markets.

U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer on Friday formally launched a Section 301 investigation into alleged intellectual property practices by China under a rarely used 1974 trade law, triggering concerns that Washington may unilaterally impose restrictions that would eventually hurt both countries.

China and other countries which have strong export competitiveness and trade surplus with the United States, like Germany, discomforted Trump nike air huarache run ultra pas cher , who won the presidential election by advocating his populist criticism of free trade.

In 2016, the United States was Germany's biggest export customer, importing 107 billion euros (about 125 billion U.S. dollars) of goods while selling back just 58 billion (about 68 billion U.S. dollars), and Trump saw Germany's gigantic trade surpluses as "a problem."

It's observed that international companies raised their interest in the magnificent "Belt and Road" initiative of China, Braml said. For example, Deutsche Bank and China Development Bank intend to invest 3 billion U.S. dollars jointly over the next five years to support projects along the new silk road.

The initiative, proposed by China in 2013 nike air huarache drift breathe pas cher , aims to build trade and infrastructure networks connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient Silk Road trade routes to seek common development and prosperity.

Moreover, the expert added that China's neighbors might move even closer to the world's second-largest economy, seeking for more arrangements with China in economic and monetary issues, if Trump were to create more barriers to trade.

A possible framework for that is the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), a proposed free trade agreement (FTA) between the 10 member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the six countries with which ASEAN has existing free trade agreements -- Australia, China, India nike air huarache pas cher , Japan, South Korea and New Zealand, Braml said.

" The Crossing, an epic romance disaster movie nike air max plus pas cher , is set in 1949 and boasts a pan-Asian cast of 24 top stars including Zhang Ziyi (above) Actor Takeshi Kaneshiro (center) in a scene from the movie. Hong Kong director John Woo shows off his waltzing skills with lead actress Zhang Ziyi at a recent media conference for the film in Beijing, saying she is his favorite star in the epic.

The first installment of the much-anticipated 3-D production The Crossing, will be released nationwide on Dec 2.

The epic romance disaster movie, set in early 1949, boasts a glittering pan-Asian cast of 24 top stars, among them Zhang Ziyi, Takeshi Kaneshiro nike air max 98 pas cher , Song Hye-kyo, Huang Xiaoming, Bowie Lam, Tong Dawei and Masami Nagasawa.

A joint production between China, Japan and South Korea, the two-part feature-length production uses the romantic stories of three couples to narrate the tragic incident of the steamer Taiping.

During a voyage from Shanghai to Keelung in Taiwan, Taiping sank after colliding with a cargo ship nike air max 98 gundam pas cher , killing nearly all the 1,000 passengers and crew members onboard on Jan 27, 1949.

""I always wanted to shoot a romance film, something like Doctor Zhivago,"" says the movie's Hong Kong director John Woo, who is well-known for his Hollywood action blockbusters, such as Broken Arrow and Mission Impossible: II.

Woo reveals that the first time he heard the story of the Taiping from Taiwan scriptwriter Wang Hui-Ling (who wrote the script for Crouching Tiger nike air max 97 pas cher , Hidden Dragon), he was deeply impressed by what he saw as a Chinese version of the Titanic sinking.

The Titanic, a British passenger liner, sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton in the United Kingdom, to New York.

Titanic the movie, directed by James Cameron and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, was a mammoth worldwide hit and broke box-office records in China in 1997.

When Woo was preparing to shoot The Crossing late in 2011 nike air max 270 pas cher , however, he found he had lymph cancer. It was only after four surgeries and more than a year's rest that he could get back to work.

More than 20 A-list actors in Asia called the movie's producers to say they wanted to participate in the movie project.

Woo, showing off his waltzing skills with lead actress Zhang Ziyi at a recent media conference for the film in Beijing, says she is his favorite star in the epic.

""Ziyi read the script four years ago. She loved the role (a wartime prostitute looking to find love) very much. She didn't care about the fees and the shooting schedule, she just wanted to star in my movie,"" says Woo.

He revealed that for the disaster scenes.
