Myanmar President U Thein Sein has called for cabinet committees to endeavor for emergence of alternative ways and means to ensure better outcomes during the remaining 30 months of the present 5-year term of office, an official media reported Saturday.

Addressing at the meeting to assign 23 deputy ministers to newly-formed 26 Cabinet Sub-committees/Delivery Units in Nay Pyi Taw on Friday, Thein Sein called on them to hold talks with civil societies, local and foreign experts and ordinary people, said the New Light of Myanmar.

He stressed that the units comprising various departments led by deputy ministers will be responsible for making coordination with private sector and civil societies to be able to fulfill the socio-economic requirements of the people and to ensure national development.

He continued that the government is making great strides in its sweeping reform processes, politically, economically and administratively to meet the desires of the entire people.

In political reform process, the government is trying hard for ensuring political stability, emergence of all-inclusive political process and putting an end to more than 60-year old armed conflicts, he said.

Local and foreign investors are invited to acquire capital and technology necessary for revitalization of national economy, he added.

During the first 30 months of the government, some works of reform processes met with success, but others fail as burgeoning of democratic practices is still weak, he disclosed.
