Ma­jor tourist city to ap­point ‘toi­let chiefs’

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The north­west­ern Chi­nese city of Xi’an, one of the most pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions in the coun­try, is to ap­point “toi­let chiefs” this year, the city tourism bureau said.

The city aims to make all public toi­lets and those in restau­rants and en­ter­tain­ment venues meet na­tional stan­dards in terms of suf­fi­cient num­bers, and clean­li­ness. All public toi­lets should also be free of charge.

The con­di­tion of toi­lets will be in­cluded in the as­sess­ment of tourist at­trac­tions and restau­rants.

China is in the midst of a three-year “toi­let rev­o­lu­tion,” build­ing 33,500 new toi­lets and ren­o­vat­ing 25,000 by the end of the year, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Tourism Ad­min­is­tra­tion.
