The modernization of national governance system and governance capacity cannot be separated from the modernization of township governance. Looking back at the evolution of township governance in Chinese history, summarizing the governance experience of more than 2000 years is helpful to promote the modernization of township governance with Chinese characteristics in the new era. Therefore, we should establish scientific governance concept, culvert the political ecology of the township, construct the characteristic culture of the township, create a positive governance environment, exert the governance role of multiple governance subjects, etc.
