Continue the "Toilet Revolution"* 

November 2017 

Over the past two years the tourism sector has made a real effort to promote the "toilet revolution", a manifestation of a tangible and down-to-earth approach. Tourism is an emerging industry that is going strong. We should continue to improve services and infrastructure to give it a boost, as we have been doing with the "toilet revolution". 

Toilets are not a trivial issue, but an important element in promoting urban and rural progress. The effort should extend from tourist sites and cities to every village. This should be a focus of the rural revitalization strategy – it is a weak area that needs to be remedied.

* Main points of the directive on progress made in the "toilet revolution" of the tourism sector.
