ABSTRACT In this paper, starting at the definition of government financial capacity, building financial capacity evaluation system through factor analysis, and given that the fiscal capacity is unbalanced not only between grain producing areas and non-grain producing areas, but also among grain producing areas. Grain producing areas’ economic development level influences financial capacity. Non-grain producing areas’ supply of public goods does not match with economic development level. Then, some suggestions are submitted.
