".... in spite of the overall size of its economy, the standard of living in China is correspondingly lower. Just one example to put this into perspective: only 20% of Chinese people have flush toilets. "

From personal experience living in China, I'd say that figure is entirely accurate.

A good proportion of the population don't even know how to USE flush toilets and leave SHOE PRINTS on the seats they precariously and absurdly squat on!

In spite of these FACTS the irresponsible CCP regime invests HEAVILY in propaganda vanity projects!

Weird or what?

China is using $100B to help bail out EU while 80% of Chinese don't have a flush toilet. China is willing to put women in space before Monkeys...that's how smart the CCP members are.

Beijing to Upgrade More Public Restrooms

2011-08-18 print

  Author ities in Beijing will earmark 10 million yuan ($1.56 million) this year to renovate 62 public restrooms in tourist attractions, a tourism official said Friday.

According to China's star rating system for public restrooms that ranges from one star to five stars, all such restrooms should open 24 hours a day and be free of charge. From one-star to five-star restrooms, their floor space should be no less than 50 square meters, 60 square meters, 80 square meters, 100 square meters, and 120 square meters. Three-star restrooms and above should be equipped with air-conditioners.

For a five-star restroom, it should be unique in appearance and its architectural style should a good match with neighboring environment and buildings. It should also be surrounded by lawns and flower beds. The interior walls of a five-star restroom should be made of marble or other high-grade stones, and beautiful background music should be broadcast whenever it opens.

Before the 2008 Olympics, the Chinese capital had built or renovated 5,200 public restrooms with higher standards, made Beijing the city with the most public restrooms in the world.

----------

Beijing has the most high standard bathrooms in the world,i still remember when i was in new york,the city has so few public bathrooms if any,and ladies waited in line in a macdonald all the way from the second floor to the first floor.if you have to be a person who always need to go to a bathroom,Beijing will be a better city to live.

an indian guy's comment on China,also mentioned bothrooms a little bit.
----------

hurtles from the clean Beijing South railway station to the snazzy Shanghai, the country’s financial hub at over 300 kmph, the country seems to be dizzyingly zooming towards its single-hearted pursuit of super power status.
“Why is that we are unable to do what the Chinese are doing?” my wife constantly asked as we took in the capital city with its impressive six-lane highways and eyes-pleasing landscaping, the Forbidden City and other tourist spots, kept spectacularly clean, despite the thousands who visit the sites every day.
I said China had a policy that controlled migration of rural people to the urban centres.
“What’s the population of Beijing,” she asked.
About 20 million, I said.
“That’s more than Delhi’s population. Still look at the difference,” my wife said pointedly.
If Beijing was a revelation, spanking Shanghai was a confirmation that we have decades to catch up with our neighbour.
No one was seen urinating or defecating on the roadsides or along the railway tracks, a ubiquitous part of Indian scenery. The reason was not difficult to find. The Chinese have built lavatories across these cities, helping the people maintain their personal dignity. And these public conveniences are kept spotlessly clean, mostly. Many of these were set up ahead of the Beijing Olympics.

All the ones that I have visted have toilets, typically of the squat variety but, that are flush toilets. To encounter one that doesn't flush is, in my experience, rare and typically associated with a toilet that has been installed for the benefit of paying customers such as fishermen or in a petrol station that is a long way out of a city.
