He believes that understanding local authorities’ cleanliness management could help Kelantan’s sustainable development. Penang has the highest recycling rate in Malaysia and aims to increase it to 70% by 2030. Penang’s treated water is among the cleanest and safest in the country, and the Raw Water Contingency Plan will increase raw water capacity by 569 million liters per day by 2030.
Faiz refuted claims that Penang was no different from Kelantan and emphasized Kelantan’s waste management and governance issues. Penang’s economy is growing rapidly, recording the highest growth rate in the country at 7.1% in 2021, contributing 7.1% to the GDP, and attracting RM76.22 billion in investment in the manufacturing sector in 2021.
