Myanmar sets up national reform committee to boost reform

Myanmar government has formed a separate national reform leading committee, led by President U Thein Sein, to direct efforts on reform program for the remaining 30 months of the present five-year term of office, replacing project commission set up in the past, official media reported Saturday.

Summoning Cabinet Ministers, Deputy Ministers and Chief Ministers of region and state governments, U Thein Sein urged to form delivery units or task forces and working groups to implement the policies on the ground through cooperation and coordination.

He called for taking enough time to sketch plan and make decision rather than holding coordination meeting for a day.

He called on the Ministers to fulfill the prioritized tasks to bring positive results to the people, cooperating closely with local and foreign academicians, private organizations and civil society organizations, listening to the voices and wishes of the people.

In the national economic development drive, he stressed measures should be taken to assure regional security, peace and stability and the rule of law.

He called for special emphasis on full implementation of people-centered development tasks for ensuring the transparency of government administrative mechanism, effective implementation of people's voice and desire, fight against corruption and bribery for peace and tranquility and regional development.

He cited the report of the Mckinsey Global Institute at the World Economic Forum as saying that the size of Myanmar's economy could reach 200 billion U.S. dollars by 2030 if Myanmar doubles its production.

He stressed that priority should be given to promote livelihood of farmers, workers, blue-collar workers and the poor, creation of job opportunities and development of farm sectors and small and medium enterprises.

He urged all-out efforts to bring about tangible results in the remaining 30 months of its reign.

President U Thein Sein's government took office on March 30, 2011 after a general election in November 2010 and length of the term of office is five years.
