Figures from the Department of Statistics Malaysia had confirmed that Penang's economic growth performance was better under current administration, claimed Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Lim's claims was based on the department's figures and Penang Institute's calculations on "change in GDP per capita by state".

He said that the data had shown that Penang recorded the lowest growth in 2007 - when BN was still in power - among all states in Malaysia before climbing to the top spot in 2014 and 2015.
