With small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) becoming a significant engine for regional economic development, it is extremely important to evaluate SME's competitiveness in an appropriate way. So far, many scholars have explored theories and introduced practice on this, yet the theoretical system of the evaluation of SME's competitiveness in China still needs perfection. Therefore, this paper tries to establish an evaluation model of SME's competitiveness in China based on their features and former theories. Also, it proposes an improved analytic hierarchy process (IAHP) with consideration of expert weight applicable to the evaluation. After brought into test, the process can well apply to the evaluation of the competitiveness of SMEs in China..
