The Cabinet plans to allocate NT$4.9 billion (US$161.67 million) to improve 5,000 public toilets and modernize toilet culture by encouraging people to flush toilet paper down the toilet.
The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) yesterday submitted a plan to renovate public toilet facilities to improve tourism quality.
