Modernization, originating from Western nations, refers to the profound societal transformations that humanity has experienced since the Industrial Revolution. Attaining modernization has been an aspiration for generations of people in developing countries, as it is viewed as an essential pathway towards development and progress. In 2022, China officially introduced the concept of "Chinese-style Modernization" in its 20th National Congress. This concept not only challenges the Western dominance over the discourse of modernization but also provides valuable experiences for developing countries to forge their own unique paths towards modernization, resulting in the creation of a new form of human civilization. This article primarily explores the fundamental essence of Chinese-style Modernization and summarizes its key characteristics. Lastly, it conducts a detailed analysis of the value insights that Chinese-style Modernization offers for African nations, with the aim of fostering their development and prosperity in the context of the contemporary era.
