Earlier this month, the government had named four ministers at the President's Office as coordination ministers to undertake the responsibility of coordinating between various ministries and state or region governments.

U Thein Sein has urged the government ministers to complete 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.

He called for reviewing the profitability of government enterprises for improving the administration mechanism, instructing enterprises which have plan for corporatization and privatization to submit their financial plans to the coming financial commission meeting in December.

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