With the deepening of economic reform, socialist market economy gradually has been established and perfected in China, urbanization gradually accelerated, urban infrastructure construction demand increasingly urgent, so local government investment in the public sector in China has gradually increased. Especially with the implementation of tax system reform "voice down, purse strings up"in1994, the local government governance scope gradually expanded, but the scope of financial rights narrowed. Facing the huge spending pressure, the chief business of the local governments at all levels were to increase fiscal revenue at the corresponding level, local governments tried to get more revenue by driving the rapid growth through investment. After the outbreak of the financial crisis in2008, our country adopted a proactive fiscal policy and started the "4trillion" rescue plan, and tried to take advantage of fixed asset investment to drive economic development, the results of these measures was the massive government investments. In2012, under the background of the economic downturn, local governments’ fiscal revenue and employment pressure were increasingly heavy. In order to accelerating the economic development, many provinces and cities took out the infrastructure investment of local government’s "killer app" again,"the local version of4trillion" investment plans started again. From June to the end of July in2012, from Shanxi to Guangdong, the total investment of major projects launched by local governments was close to the4trillion.Investment decision-making is the initial part of the government investment projects, the stand or fall of decision-making directly relates to the success or failure of the whole investment projects. The construction of local government investment project mainly concentrated in transportation, energy, utilities, etc. There is no denying the fact that the government investment in these projects can optimize economic development condition, improve local infrastructures, create more jobs, and has many other effects. But it is worth noting that the government investment is not to get economic interests as the fundamental starting point, It cannot be directly subject to market regulation, the project decision-making process will be influenced by a lot of internal and external factors, which leads to inefficient government investment project decision-making. What’s more, decision-making errors is higher, leads to more waste of resources and economic losses of the state. Perfecting the of project investment decision-making of local government is the key to reducing decision-making errors or failure rate, and it is also the important way to realize the scientific and democratization and legalization of investment decision-making of local governments.This paper, according to the contents, can be divided into five parts: introduction, relevant theoretical basis, development situation and operation characteristics of local governments’investment decision-making in our country, problems existing in the decision-making and analysis on the reason of these problems, countermeasures and suggestions to perfect investment decision-making of our local governments.Part Ⅰ:Introduction.
