- In China, the supply of public services, once limited to administrative districts, has gradually broken through the rigid constraints and become a complex regional public service supply problem. Local governments have begun to change their traditional closed management style and strengthen horizontal ties with other regional governments, and horizontal collaboration among governments in providing public services has become a major trend. As the main supplier of public services, whether local governments are motivated to collaborate and whether they can turn their motivation into action largely determines the quality and efficiency of public service provision. As a kind of collaborative system, the horizontal inter-governmental public service supply also suffers from “collaborative inertia”, i.e., weakened motivation, low efficiency and obvious conflicts. From the perspective of the root cause of “collaborative inertia”, the interest factor plays a key role in the collaborative supply among local governments. This paper analyzes how the key factor of interest acts on the motive of synergistic supply, constructs a three-dimensional analysis model of “collaborative inertia”, analyzes the inner movement mechanism of each dimension, and proposes measures to alleviate “collaborative inertia”, providing theoretical suggestions for realizing the synergistic supply of intergovernmental public services, and providing decision-making reference for the practice of synergistic supply of intergovernmental public services.
