The results shows that there is an equilibrium relationship that is negative effects in the short term and positive effects the in the long term between direct investment inflows and government final consumption, that is, FDI will prompt the conversion of government functions to the market in the short term, but it will not be conducive to the marketization of government functions in the long term; There is a long-term complementary relationship, which is a short-term substitute between FDI and trade. In economic development, there is a conflict between short-term goals and long-term goals, between the government and the market. Therefore, this paper point out ,in the transformation and upgrading of China's economy, institutional reforms are needed, and making the government playing a key role in the allocation of economic resources , and the market gradually playing a decisive role .
