The China Innovation Index rose 5.7 percent year-on-year in 2016 to 181.2 points, the statistics authority said Thursday.

The index comprises four sub-indices, which measure innovation environment, input, output and effects, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said in a statement.

The sub-index for the environment rose 4.9 percent, while innovation effects rose 5.2 percent. The sub-indices for input and output rose by 4.8 percent and 7.2 percent.

"Steady growth of the index shows China's progress in implementing innovation-driven development strategy and promoting entrepreneurship and innovation," said Guan Xiaojing, an NBS statistician.
