China: President Xi Jinping urges citizen to advance the Toilet Revolution

China's 'toilet revolution' was launched in 2015 as part of efforts to make restrooms- often squat toilets with no paper- more tourist-friendly

"Support the toilet revolution", one user wrote.

China's president Xi Jinping wants unswerving efforts to upgrade the nation's lavatories as part of a "toilet revolution" and called for a major upgrade to facilities to boost domestic tourism and improve quality of life. "It's an important aspect of building civilized cities and countryside".

China's National Tourism Administration recently announced plans to build and upgrade 64,000 toilets between 2018 and 2020.

"It appears they have withdrawn their global responsibility and leadership which has raised question about stability in Asia-Pacific as well as the state power of the USA", she said, according to the South China Morning Post. Xi has reminded cadres the need to carry out the toilet tumult until the end, perhaps akin to Marx's permanent revolution, and encouraged officials to continue to modernise tourist bathrooms while expanding the the push to rural homes.


In 2015, China started a three-year campaign to improve the standard of public toilets at tourist sites across the country. He also has advocated for modernizing villages by making restrooms more sanitary.

"Local authorities are now more aware of the important role toilets play, believing better toilets are not only beneficial for tourism, but can also. enhance the overall level of civilisation of society". Chinese government took step further by declaring it "China Toilet Revolution" day as well. "A handsome environment and hygienic toilets are essential to a good standard", Bai Lin, China project manager with the World Toilet Organisation, told the South China Morning Post.

China also needs to deal with waste treatment because sewage can contaminate the country's underground water system, Bai added.

While studies have indicated that squatting may have health benefits over sitting, the position is still hard to accept for those accustomed to porcelain thrones. Facial recognition is now employed in some places to limit individual toilet paper portions.
