Government procurement has great advantages in reducing the uncertainty of innovation, expanding the demand for innovative products, making up for the positive externalities of innovation, and improving the quality of public services, which can directly promote innovation. The use of government procurement to promote innovation is a common practice in many OECD countries. These countries have developed legal or policy tools to ensure that government procurement fully promotes innovation, and integrate innovation goals with other policy goals to better address social challenges. However, in recent years, China has not attached importance to the role of government procurement in promoting innovation, which is not conducive to the development of innovation. By learning from the experience of OECD countries, China should restore and improve the policy design to make it more operable and integrate the goal of promoting innovation into other social goals.
