NAYPYITAW, Myanmar - Myanmar's government will unveil a slew of new reforms to donor countries and international organizations this weekend, aiming to consolidate achievements since the end of military rule in 2011 but also quickly improve the lives of its citizens.

A wide-ranging "Framework for Economic and Social Reforms" to be presented in the capital, Naypyitaw, sets out priorities until 2015 and broader initiatives "that will allow Myanmar to become a modern, developed and democratic nation by 2030".

The document seen by Reuters, which addresses such issues as liberalization of trade and investment, health and education, transparency and infrastructure, admits Myanmar "is way behind neighboring countries".
