here's what i'd think...

1-low cost labor
2-class-C quality
3-foundation established
4-chinese's employer abuse its own employee
5-100% profits for employer
6-compete within its own country
7-delivery goods by ship

It's got mostly to do with LOGISTICS, and ECONOMY OF SCALE.

and some other mundane factors!

No one in China wants our products to sell cheaply  .but we have to sell our goods at  low price levels cause we have no other advantages to compete with those products of developed countries .
   And after 2 decades  we have built up our basement and realize that we have to change our economic growth pattern . so do't worry you will have no way to find this cheap products in the near future .

"why are Chinese products so cheap"

Because China has abundant supply of low cost workforce.

"why no other country in the world is able to compete with China when it comes to cheap prices...But there are many countries in Asia and Africa where the salaries are similar or less than that of China"

China has many other factors that other countries don't have: quality of work, dedication, international investments in nearby factories that takes in the products, ....etc.

Take Indonesian for example. They don't have that kind of mentality and attitude towards work.

If you're an investor yourself, would you pour in your money in Indonesia and Africa? Or would you be more confident of Chinese workers?

The choice is yours. But to others, they've chosen to place confidence on Chinese productions capability.
