Comment on "Why made-in-China goods cost more" (China Daily, Dec 14)

I agree with the author's analysis. Developed countries have a much larger market for the goods mentioned in the article. Many buyers of such products are common consumers who can bring down the prices more easily.

But in China, such products are considered luxury goods, whose target consumers are not so price-sensitive.

A few examples are the digital cameras and foreign brand clothes. They cost almost twice more in China than in the West.
