So, the only chance for national manufactured goods from third world countries would be a price advantage over Western goods. However, the price advantage is driven by the price level at which these goods are sold. The lower the import taxes, the lower the price that Western goods will be commercialized at and, as such, the lower the price advantage for manufactured goods n developing countries.

Many developing countries produce much cheaper goods, but this would tend to suffocate national producers in United States and the European Union, for example, because they would not be able to compete with cheaper grains, fruits, etc. As such, developed countries use either import taxes or export subsidies that will allow for lower price for the producers at which they will sell and will thus protect national farmers by ensuring they stay in business.
