The CNTA launched a three-year program in January called Toilet Revolution, which aims to build 33,000 restrooms across the nation by 2017 and renovate 24,000 existing facilities.

As an important measure of the "515" strategy for promoting tourism development, the "toilet revolution" has become a gigantic tourism infrastructure, civility and livelihood project in the urban-rural public service sector.

"Toilets may be small things but they reflect the level of civilization in a country," says Li Jinzao, director of the CNTA.
