19 indicators of the two systems—ecological environment and economic development in western China are selected to measure the synergy level of green ecology and regional economic development in western China from 2014 to 2019 and accelerate the pace of high-quality economic development. The entropy method and the composite system synergy model are employed to carry out the comprehensive evaluation. The results show that western China's ecological environment and economic development generally perform an N-type development trend with alternating increases and decreases. At the same time, the synergy degree is low. The evaluation highlights the clear differences between the southwest and northwest regions. Western China should adhere to sustainable development and lay more emphasis on the protection and restoration of the ecological environment in future economic development.
