China’s ‘Toilet Revolution’ is Declared a Success by the Government

China’s “toilet revolution” has been a success. The government has announced that the country has met 92.7 percent of the official target set in 2015 to upgrade 52,485 toilets.

The China National Tourism Administration even issued an official report entitled: ‘Progress of the toilet revolution’ –an initiative that aims at making the country’s facilities cleaner and more regulated after years of tourist complaints of insufficient and unhygienic conditions and a lack of sanitation workers.

China’s goal by the end of 2017 is to add or upgrade a total of 71,000 toilets –far exceeding their original goal according to Xinhua news agency.


A recent survey showed that over 80 percent of tourists finding toilets satisfactory, compared to 70 per cent in 2015 –which, when you put it that way, doesn’t really sound so bad.

Carry on.
