Xinhua news agency, Beijing, November 27 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, President of the state and chairman of the Central Military Commission, recently gave important instructions on the achievements made in promoting the "toilet revolution" in the tourism system. He stressed that over the past two years, the tourism system has been unremitting in promoting the "toilet revolution", which embodies the working attitude and style of conscientiously doing and striving to solve practical problems. Tourism is a new industry in the ascendant. We should continue to strengthen the construction of all kinds of software and hardware to promote the great development of tourism, just like the "toilet revolution".
Xi Jinping pointed out that the issue of toilets is not a small matter, but an important aspect of urban and rural civilization construction. We should not only focus on scenic spots and cities, but also on rural areas. We should promote this work as a specific work of Rural Revitalization Strategy, and strive to make up for this shortcoming that affects the quality of life of the masses.
In April 2015, General Secretary Xi Jinping once made an important instruction on "toilet revolution", stressing that grasping "toilet revolution" is a pragmatic move to improve the quality of tourism industry. Rome wasn't built in a day. We should, like opposing the "four winds", make up our mind to rectify all kinds of uncivilized habits of tourism. We should carry forward the spirit of "nail in the nail", take targeted measures, one after another, one after another, accumulate small victories to win, and promote the development of China's tourism to a new level.
The toilet problem is not only related to the improvement of tourism environment, but also related to the improvement of people's working and living environment, the improvement of national quality and the progress of social civilization. General Secretary Xi Jinping attaches great importance to and cares about this. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, in the process of investigation and research in China, when he went into the households, he often asked the villagers whether they used the water toilet or the dry toilet. When inspecting the appearance of the villages, he would also learn about the relevant situation in detail. He has repeatedly stressed that with the accelerated pace of agricultural modernization, the construction of new rural areas should also be continuously promoted, and a "toilet revolution" should be carried out to let rural people use sanitary toilets.
Since 2015, the National Tourism Administration has launched three-year construction and management of tourist toilets nationwide. Since the launch of the action, the national tourism system has taken the "toilet revolution" as a basic project, a civilized project and a livelihood project, and made careful deployment and strong promotion. The "toilet revolution" has achieved remarkable results. By the end of October this year, 68000 tourist toilets had been newly rebuilt, exceeding the target of 19.3%. The "toilet revolution" has gradually expanded from scenic spots to the whole area, from cities to rural areas, from quantity to quality, and has been widely welcomed by the masses and tourists.
