China's three decades of reform and opening up has made great achievements the Chinese people brought huge material basis, but the government in economic development, the negative effects are gradually revealed. Political economy from growing background of this study, a combination of local governments in the promotion tournament to benefit government officials promoted the objective of maximizing the development of the regional economy as the main way to achieve that interest. In the context of this system, the formation of local government and the relationship between the interests of administrative boundaries is the main purpose of this article I want to study. In research methods, this paper were established government \of conclusions. In reaching this difference, based on redefining the boundary effect in the administrative boundary problems, that its causes are mainly local governments are more concerned about the economic benefits to the region, because the boundaries of the market economy spillover effect, in geographical space inevitably result in economic development between the provinces blank area. In the border region development policy recommendations, this groundbreaking theoretical model to analyze the local government area of ​​the boundary cooperation in public goods supply failure, and for this phenomenon suggests how to fill the gaps in policy advice. The significance of this study lies in the adjacent provinces government officials are often promoted to major competitors, when officials give more consideration to their promotion, the economic spillover effects of increasing the radius of policy effectiveness will be reduced, so that the formation of the boundary region boundary effects increases. So for local government, its function orientation focused on service-oriented government should be established to public facilities and infrastructure for the government's main investment direction, the boundaries of the government and the market re-considered and defined; should also improve superior to subordinate local government policy coordination, strengthen supervision and regulation; avoid leaving the blind pursuit of profit and advancement regional development imbalances, reduce government intervention or omission of factors led to the backward state. Based on the promotion of the political and economic context attractive to explore the Chinese local government and the relationship between the boundary effects, the theoretical value lies in the existing governance structure put forward a sound opinions on the positioning of government functions clearly defined; their real value that tend to rely on the government's policy to allow poor areas to improve border backwardness. Therefore, in the context of regional economic integration, the face formed by the Government of factors boundary effects should not only within the administrative boundaries to achieve maximum benefit, but also pay attention to the balanced development of regions in question, avoiding blind pursuit of political promotion profit was unbalanced and economic coordination and regional development gaps behavior.
