DA MP Tim Harris will head up investment promotion for the City of Cape Town, mayor Patricia de Lille has said.

She said Harris would join her office to align city and provincial economic programmes, presenting a “united front” for investors looking to create jobs in the city.

Harris was the Democratic Alliance’s finance spokesperson in Parliament and developed the party’s policies in this regard.

De Lille said Harris’ involvement would help maintain Cape Town’s status as “the best-run city in the country” and provide “new vigour” to make progress possible.

“With two years to go until the local government elections in 2016, we are committed to extending Cape Town’s lead as South Africa’s premier investment destination,” she said.
