The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposes to implement a strategy for rural revitalization. Promote the development of rural areas in accordance with the general requirements of “prosperous industries, ecological livability, rural civilization, effective governance, and a prosperous life”. This is a continuation and sublimation of the construction of a new countryside, which can help achieve a well-off society, a nation's prosperity, and national rejuvenation, and can better guide the people's pursuit of a better life in the new era. The rural revitalization strategy is a systematic project. Effective governance at the grassroots level is the cornerstone and guarantee for rural revitalization. It can ensure that the rural revitalization strategy is implemented and provide reliable resources for the implementation of the rural revival strategy.This study takes the rural revitalization strategy as the perspective, adopts the literature research method, case study method, and in-depth interview method. Taking Nong'an County, Changchun City, Jilin Province as an example, we find that there are many challenges in rural grassroots governance. This is specifically manifested in the obsession with privileges of some government authorities, the interference of rural clan forces in rural governance, the brutality of foreign capital, and insufficient participation of the masses. These have led to aggravated conflicts of interest among governance subjects, which seriously hindered the pace of good governance in rural areas. The rural areas have a backward economy and heavy debts, insufficient public goods supply, and low social security levels. The phenomenon of “hollow village” and “three left-behind” in rural areas is serious. According to the report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the spirit of a sound rural governance system that combines autonomy, rule of law, and rule of virtue needs to be steadily advanced from several aspects: First, give play to the core role of the leadership of the village party organization, and focus on solving and eradicating rural chaos. The second is to improve relevant laws and promote the legalization of rural grassroots governance. The third is to give full play to the main role of villagers' autonomy. The fourth is to optimize the rural grassroots governance system, and promote the improvement of governance organizations and governance elites. Finally, explore the urban-rural linkage economic development model to provide economic security for rural grassroots governance.
