“For example (information can be given on) the issue of river pollution, which is becoming increasingly rampant resulting in the disruption of water supply in the Klang Valley,” he said.

Apart from that, he said that the government would continue the national development agenda based on good governance and uphold the principle of integrity.

He said that the government would ensure that the National Anti-Corruption Plan (NACP) and the recruitment of 100 officers of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) would continue as well as the implementation of anti-corruption education at all levels.
