    compared with/to

    In contrast, in Japan the greatest single expense was other goods and services at 29%, compared with 26% in Malaysia.

    Can I use 'compared to'?
    If I make any mistakes in English, please let me know! Please! Thank you!

    Re: compared with/to

    Yes, you can. However, the sentence is not well phrased at all!

    Re: compared with/to

    Don't use "in contrast" and "compared" in the same sentence.
