Yahoo! News - Thailand to Host World Toilet Summit: "Thailand to Host World Toilet Summit

BANGKOK, Thailand - Thailand plans to upgrade hygiene in its public toilets to meet international standards as it prepares to host the World Toilet Summit next year, a health official said Wednesday.

'Toilets are very important for the country's image in the eyes of visitors,' said Somyos Chareonsak, a senior official of the Public Health Ministry.

The conference is to be held in May 2006.

The first summit, organized by the World Toilet Organization, was held in 2001 in Singapore. China, where toilet facilities are often in need of upgrades, hosted one last year.

Topics discussed at the meetings include toilet design and technology, toilet management and hygiene and energy-saving measures."
