I am really upset that Asus g750jh is costly in country's other than US & Taiwan .
In US its price is almost 2239$ only but same in Australia is 3422$.
Why there is differences in price. I really want to buy this but price stops me to buy. So any suggestions about the matter?

But here in Indonesia all the Asus reseller sell the G750JX-CV050h which the display is the 3D one with 120Hz fps.

This would be a good question for Asus' product support team. :) You could probably get a quick answer via their toll free number, or you can email them.

We are upset of partiality of Asus corp. That they are not launching this product in my country India and is costlier in other countries

Could be the taxation of the different countries? remember some countries charge even 100% of the price of the item, as a tax, just to bring it in...

I hope you are posting this same question on every manufacturer's website along with multiple country's import governing body. FYI, this has been in place for at least 23 years that i have been alive...
Have a read of this 2008 article:

This isnt something Asus can control. As others have stated, it largely has to do with Tax and import duties for the country YOU live in. The US consumes a very large amount of imported goods, so its cheaper here.

Its the same as something like German vehicles. They are expensive here in the US, but are less in Germany where they are produced. Asus cannot control the prices around the world. Every country will be different.

As already stated, this is Not up to Asus. There are many things to consider.
Australia for example has Customs Import Duty of up to 10% AND Import GST of 10%,
additionally there is T&I [International Transport & Insurance] and Customs Entry Fee or Broker $40-$55.
THEN .. there is the importers charge that of course is passed on to the retailer and the mark up
of the retailer plus sales tax [which if I'm not mistaken is another 10%]. ... Whew !!! Yikes !!! .c.

It's the taxation.
Austraila has like the highest electronic device taxation in the world.
