CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape government plans to launch an R832 million project aimed at generating job opportunities in the Breede Valley.

On Tuesday, Provincial Premier Helen Zille and her cabinet visited Worcester to engage with community members, particularly farmers and business owners.

Local government MEC Anton Bredell outlined the multimillion rand initiative, which will see 64 projects rolled out over the next two years.

"We need to invest, especially in infrastructure. You cannot attract business and industry if you don't have enough water, sewage and electricity capacity."
