From the perspective of the innovation value chain, this paper takes the data of seven cities in Xi'an, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Wuhan, Zhengzhou, Nanjing and Xuzhou from 2010 to 2020 as the research object and uses the point-to-face, CRITIC weighting method and matrix analysis to carry out empirical analysis. This paper evaluates the innovation primacy of Xuzhou and explores the problems and gaps of Xuzhou's innovation primacy by comparing it with the national central city. Finally, it gives corresponding suggestions on the problems of Xuzhou's innovation primacy and how to improve Xuzhou's innovation primacy.
