Li Jinzao said that it is of special significance to hold the 2018 national toilet revolution work site meeting in Zhengding, Hebei Province. As early as 1982, when General Secretary Xi Jinping was working in Zhengding, he attached great importance to the issue of toilets and vigorously promoted the transformation of "lianmaoquan" in rural areas. While renovating the rural toilets, General Secretary Xi Jinping also reviewed the situation and put forward the strategy of "developing the county through tourism". By developing the tourism industry to drive the "three industries" and serve the provincial capital, he built Zhengding into the nearest tourism window from Shijiazhuang and created the "Zhengding mode" of China's tourism industry. It can be said that Zhengding has a spiritual pedigree worthy of pursuing with the toilet revolution and tourism.
Li Jinzao pointed out that in the past three years, the whole industry has carefully studied, deeply understood and fully implemented the important directive spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping on the toilet revolution, and has been brave in taking on responsibilities, and has really worked hard to develop and innovate, forming many good experiences and practices. First, we should take the initiative to promote the toilet revolution. Many localities have established a coordinated mechanism to promote the toilet revolution under the overall planning of the party and government. The tourism departments of 31 provinces, districts and cities and Xinjiang production and Construction Corps all exceeded the three-year goal of the toilet revolution in advance. Second, we should adhere to the problem orientation, overcome difficulties and promote the toilet revolution. We should pay close attention to the key and difficult points such as ideological transformation, fund raising, application of science and technology, management and operation, increase capital investment, vigorously promote the application of new energy technology, new material technology, biological treatment technology, etc., and actively explore the business management mode of building toilets by business, maintaining toilets by business, and managing toilets by business. Third, we should adhere to the principle of "from the small to the big" and effectively promote the toilet revolution. The proportion of men's and women's toilets shall be humanized, the construction of barrier free facilities and children's toilets shall be strengthened, 249 5A level tourist attractions shall be vigorously promoted to set up the third toilet in an all-round way, and toilet civilization publicity and guidance activities shall be carried out. Fourth, we should carry forward the spirit of nailing and continue to promote the toilet revolution. Based on the current situation and the long-term plan, we will expand from focusing on the toilets in scenic spots to other tourist places along the tourist routes, leisure blocks, tourist towns, etc., from focusing on urban tourist toilets to focusing on rural tourist spots (areas) and toilets for rural tourist operators, and from the East to the Midwest. With the pragmatic attitude and persistent work style of toilet revolution, all localities focus on tourism investment, rural tourism, tourism poverty alleviation, tourism safety and civilized tourism, and vigorously promote the transformation of tourism from the stage of high-speed growth to the stage of high-quality tourism development.
Li Jinzao stressed that China's economic, social and tourism development has entered a new era, the Party Central Committee and the State Council have put forward higher requirements for us, and the people have placed more expectations on us. Toilet revolution is always on the way. We should not be paralyzed and lax. We should further strengthen our sense of responsibility and mission. We should take promoting toilet revolution as a concrete action and political task to implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. We should pay close attention to it in accordance with the concept of global tourism and the requirements of high-quality tourism development. All localities should pay close attention to the implementation of responsibilities, strengthen project management and planning guidance; pay attention to practical use, abstain from luxury, and promote the toilet revolution according to local conditions; focus on work, and solidly promote the rural toilet revolution; strengthen the application of technology, and provide scientific and technological support for the toilet revolution; adhere to the combination of construction and management, and focus on innovation of operation and management methods; widely carry out publicity and education, and improve the level of toilet civilization; and We should strengthen factor guarantee, increase support for the toilet revolution, improve the level of opening-up and cooperation, realize mutual benefit and win-win results of the toilet revolution, do a solid job in the new three-year plan of the toilet revolution, and strive to create a new situation for the development of high-quality tourism in China.
The meeting requested that in order to further implement the "toilet revolution", all localities should do a good job in five aspects of supervision. First, strengthen social supervision. The new three-year action plan and annual implementation plan for the toilet revolution formulated by various regions should be made public to the public within a certain range and actively accepted the supervision of the masses and tourists. Second, implement daily supervision. All localities should carefully fill in the information of the National Tourism toilet project management system, and strictly carry out the refined management of toilet construction. Third, innovation technology supervision. Using the evaluation and complaint functions of "China wide tourism toilet navigation system" and "national wide holographic information system", a survey of tourists' satisfaction with toilets was carried out. Fourth, strengthen the supervision of public opinion. The National Tourism Administration and local governments should organize mainstream media to focus on toilet management services, civilization promotion, scientific and technological innovation and other aspects to carry out special reports. Fifth, strict assessment and supervision. The National Tourism Administration will take the effect of toilet revolution as an essential element for the establishment and evaluation of the whole tourism demonstration area, A-level tourist attraction, tourist resort, characteristic tourist destination, etc. Local governments should also establish corresponding mechanisms to assess the progress of toilet plan implementation, the quality of project completion, and the efficiency of fund use.
