Ho Chi Minh City will review and repair deteriorating public restrooms and build new ones to meet the demand of local residents and tourists, said municipal chairman Phan Van Mai.

The Office of the municipal People’s Committee announced chairman Mai’s conclusions after a meeting on the organization and management of public restrooms in the city’s downtown area.

In particular, Voluntary Youth Public Benefit Service Co. Ltd. was assigned to study and propose designs, finances, operations, and management plans for public toilets in the downtown area, meeting the requirements of modernity, convenience, beauty, and environmental friendliness.

In addition, the People’s Committee of Thu Duc City and districts and relevant departments and agencies were told to review all public restrooms, thereby suggesting measures to improve the service management and quality.

Authorities of inlying districts will continue to call on owners, managers, and operators of post offices, gas stations, supermarkets, stores, trade centers, restaurants, hotels, and coach stations to allow visitors to use toilets on their premises.

Moreover, signs should be put up so that visitors can easily find public toilets.

In Ho Chi Minh City, the lack of public restrooms and the deteriorating state of current ones have become a common complaint of residents and tourists. 

Therefore, relevant agencies need to pay attention to resolve the issue.

According to Voluntary Youth Public Benefit Service Co. Ltd., it is managing 44 public toilets in the city. The toilets are tidied up and cleaned every day.

The company will draw up plans to build more public toilets this year.
