4.4 Questions of trustworthiness
To make yourself a reliable and honest person in the eyes of the public, including your counterparts, remain the main quality to check your trustworthiness. According to Lincoln and Guba, the ability to stand – or fail – such test lies in the answer to the following question: “How can an inquirer persuade his or her audiences (including self) that the findings of an inquiry are worth paying attention to, worth taking into account?” The answer is not easy in coming, for the established practice requires the trial of research against the following standards: study-based coherence, general cogency, confidence level (degree of consistency and accuracy) and freedom from bias. Altogether these criteria help to shape the logical positivism and produce a clear example of research that corresponds to the emergence of impartial reality that absorbs a cause-effect relationship, which, in its turn, is independent of how human beings communicate and interact with each other.
Given that this assumption has a sound logical basis for natural sciences, it fails to be suited for qualitative studies that are carried out in the context of a constructive paradigm – that is meant to indicate the presence numerous realities that are built and based upon by the interaction involving the inquirer and relevant actors. When reality represents a combination of varied, therefore subjective, constructions, evaluation of trustworthiness against traditional criteria become a major issue often leading to the impossibility to evaluate at all. Thus, Lincoln and Guba (1985) propose another set of criteria, precisely the quality of gaining the trust of the others (credibility), the ability to convey (transferability), the state of being influential, i.e. carrying the weight with others (credibility), and the verification characteristics (confirmability). If conventional research is a question, these criteria could provide the necessary answer through logical soundness, confidence and freedom from bias. On the other side, they have a reflexive nature to shape trustworthiness in all forms.
What follows below is how trustworthiness of my study is examined against these criteria.
4.4.1 Credibility
According to Lincoln and Guba (1985), there are certain techniques that ensure credibility of qualitative research. First, there are activities that are aimed at increasing the probability that credible findings will be produced. They include prolonged engagement (that is meant to be total immersion in the native culture of respondents through day-to-day communication with them), persistent observation (which enables the researcher to measure the extent of experience and understanding the context in which the studied culture evolves and is exposed to multiple influences), and triangulation (or the use of several methods in order to navigate the study by checking interim results and remaining compliant with the subject). Another tool is peer debriefing to provide a ‘side view’ to check up on the study. Negative case analysis, implying the calibration of the hypothesis in the course of research, is another useful instrument. The ‘toolkit’ is complemented with referential adequacy, a way to screen preliminary findings against historical source data. Finally, respondent validation provides scope for the findings to be checked with the informants. As far as the trustworthiness of my research goes, I will concentrate on the techniques which I deem most appropriate to my study: prolonged engagement, persistent

4. Impact on society
Malaysia generates large amount of agriculture waste such as oil palm, rice, sugar cane and bamboo, the bulk of which are not being currently utilised for any further downstream operation. Some of the company may burn agriculture waste directly to reduce the cost. However, agriculture wastes burning are one among the many sources of air pollution. Severe pollution of land and water on local as well as regional scale caused by burning of agriculture waste. This also adversely affects the nutrient budget in the soil. Besides, agriculture waste produce carbon, nitrogen and sulphur and lost to the atmosphere in the process of burning. It results in the emission of smoke which if added to the gases present in the air like methane, nitrogen oxide and ammonia, can cause severe atmospheric pollution. Those smoke will cause health risk, aggravating asthma, chronic bronchitis and decrease lung function. Burning of agriculture wastes may also contribute indirectly to the increased ozone pollution. Poor visibility which could lead to increased road side incidences of accident also affected by burning of agriculture wastes. It has adverse consequences on the quality of soil. This is because when the agriculture waste is burnt the existing minerals present in the soil get destroyed which adversely hampers the cultivation of the next crop. Impact of burning includes removal of a large portion of the organic material which affect the agriculture product. Therefore, the product decided to use bamboo and rice husk to produce environmental friendly product.

4.1. RELEVANT LITERATURE REVIEW
The National Transformation Program NTP of the Saudi Arabia government on 2020 and the vision 2030-policy strategic frameworks are incongruence with perceived developmental agendas of economic advancement to short and long-term goals of the millennial development goals MDGs (Alshuwaikhat & Mohammed, 2017). In the strategic government decision-making platform, through a technical, political complex and multi-dimensional path, like the vision 2030, the government weighing various economic decisions on the way out to improve or ascertain the goals of the mission (Politis, Klumpp, & Celebi, 2010).
This theme is vital to achieving the Vision 2030 as a strong foundation for economic prosperity and building a significantly a vibrant society. A society to live in accordance with the Islamic principle of moderation, tolerance, ethical and are proud of their national identity and their ancient cultural heritage, enjoy a good life in a beautiful environment, are protected by caring families and are supported by an empowering social and health care system (Alshuwaikhat & Mohammed, 2017). In the same vein, a thriving a more vibrant investment economy provides opportunities for all by building an education system aligned with market needs and creating economic opportunities for the entrepreneur, the SMEs as well as the large corporation. Tapping on developing the investment tools to unlock promising economic sectors, diversify the economy and create job opportunities (International Monetary Fund, 2015). The economic growth boosts and improves the quality of services, by privatizing some government services, improving the business environment, attracting the finest talent and the best investments globally, and leveraging the unique strategic location in connecting three continents. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia is ambitious in the set goals of the vision, on the reliance of the analytic hierarchy process on a political decision. The effectiveness and efficiency of the responsibility at all levels heavily on political wheels of anarchy. The most vital among these is building an effective, transparent, accountable, enabling and high-performing government that will lead the way to realize the set-out vision 2030. It is against the backdrop that, the preparation of the right environment for our citizens, the private sector and the non-profit sector to take their responsibilities and take the initiative in facing challenges and seizing opportunities.
In the highlighted a selection of commitments and goals, as a reflection of the ambition and aspirations representing the aim of achieving the vision 2030 agenda. This Vision will be the point of reference for our future decisions, so that all future projects are aligned to its content (Saudi Vision 2030, 2016). The literature of this will be handled on the following thematic areas;
4.1.1. HEART OF THE ARAB AND ISLAMIC WORLD
In the near and far future of development, many successful visions start with main goals and objective of achieving those forecasting dreams as the case of KSA national transformation program NTP. To comprehend the position of the Arabs and the Islamic world, the KSA is geographically endowed with many bestowed resources beyond oil. The land and heart of the Arabs are gifted with the two holy mosques sustainable and capable enough to restore hopes, peace, and tranquility in the far and near future (H.R.H Mohammed bin Salman, 2015). These two holy mosques are historically the most sacred places and respected enough to have ever existed in the history of humankind. The sanctity of the place is observed, as all Muslims across the globe, there is no shred of doubt on it nor argument based on this holiness of the two masques. The first among the two mosques is the Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) in Medina and the second is the mosques situated in Mecca where the center of the world is protected against any atrocities (Saudi Vision 2030, 2016).
In the vein, the KSA is bestowed with the most sacred black-stone called Kaaba (Qibla) from which Muslims all world direct the bearing of their five daily prayers and any other prayers towards. Billions of Muslims are directional to the Kaaba since its inception, built by Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismail. The relational determination of the KSA is within the geographical, cultural and ethical Islamic rubrics that kept the unity and togetherness of the people in the precious country. Therefore, the further development and expansion of the hidden talents and potentials of the of KSA is the human capital sector and integration of economic endeavors to the rest of the world (H.R.H Mohammed bin Salman, 2015). As part of the leading example been bestowed from time immemorial, the Kaaba that brings billions of Muslims across the globe annually is an indication of a clear sign of necessity to integrate into many other sectors. The unity of purpose and union by the Umrah and Hajj ethically give a signal of the bond of relationship due to the geographical tendencies bestowed on the KSA. The investment and economic ties the Umrah and Hajj due to the geographical location and mercies, of the heart of the Arabs, signifies a diplomatic mission of hope of achieving the Saudi Arabia vision 2030, as part of the National Transformation program agenda (Saudi MOF, CMA, 2017).
