Form the view of human geography, using synthetically theory and method of international economic and trade geography, institutional economic and relatively social science, this thesis discloses the impact of border, effect of border and location of border to transborder regional cooperation, and the character of movement mechanism, the institutional arrangement and transborder organization in order to enrich the theory of transborder economic cooperation and develop the research scope of the human geography. On the basis of resuming and analyzing the impact of essence of border and effect of border to the transborder regional economic cooperation, from the view of the enterprises centralization, this thesis mainly discusses the character of the locations of border region and the impact factors in the course of the transformation of effect of border. Based on above views, the transformation and character of the mechanism, institutional arrangement and organization structure of transborder economic cooperation have been discussed. It is impacted intensely by border, because it is not just an economic behavior for transborder economic cooperation, but a kind of economic, social and cultural phenomena. In essence, border has properties of "contradiction","complexity"and "transformation". The impacts of border to transborder economic cooperation include shield effects and agency effects.

Thus, the shield effects of border increase the transaction-cost of the transborder economic cooperation. The agency effects of border make the border region a firms centralizing areas, and by the analysis of mechanism of firms centralization of border region, this thesis sets up a mechanism of firms centralization of border region theory model, then, many important summations have been made which they followed:the powers of firms centralization in border region comes from firms seeking income surplus and cost surplus, which impact each other; the implement mechanism of firms centralization is the cost reducing, including the cost of factors, spatial contact and market transaction.
