China ’s top-25 entry marks the first time a middle-income country has joined the highly developed economies that have historically dominated the top of the Global Innovation Index (GII) throughout its nine years of surveying the innovative capacity of 100-plus countries across the globe. China ’s progression reflects the country’s improved innovation performance as well as methodological considerations such as improved innovation metrics in the GII.
