China tourismThe Chinese President Xi Jinping said that China must continue the effort to “revolutionize” its toilets until the task is completed, which is important for boosting the domestic tourist industry and improving the quality of life.


Xi launched the “toilet revolution” in 2015 as part of a drive for improving standards of domestic tourism in China, which he said suffers from deep-seated problems of a lack of civility.


Xi said, “The toilet issue is no small thing, it’s an important aspect of building civilized cities and countryside,” Xi said.

As an emerging industry, Chinese tourism needs an advance in both hardware and software to continue strong growth. China’s National Tourism Administration recently announced plans to build and upgrade 64,000 toilets between 2018 and 2020.


Xi said that the toilet revolution is more than just giving tourists a better holiday experience; it is also about creating a better and civilized society.

Since coming to power in 2012, Xi has often visited homes in the countryside and checked to see if the locals use pit toilets, and stressed that village modernization requires sanitary toilets.


China’s tourism industry has upgraded 68,000 toilets over the last three years, completing about 19 percent of the task, in what it called “universally welcomed” renovations.
