(From Yibada)

There’s no turning back.

As the country asserts the role of tourism to be a vital economic vehicle, it continues to upgrade public toilets at tourist destinations, with President Xi Jinping supporting the project, according to Financial Times.

The China National Tourism Administration introduced a three-year “toilet revolution” campaign in 2015.

Across China, 22,009 toilets were built last year.

CNTA said that more than 12.5 billion yuan may likely be spent by the government to fund all that, reported Caixin Online.

Across the country, 22,009 toilets were already built last year, according to a February post by the CNTA.
