The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu was founded in 1975 by a decision from Saudi government to construct industrial complexes throughout the Kingdom in order to support and diversify the national economy. Accordingly, The Royal Commission encouraged development in all aspects to include various sectors such as: urban, social, health, education, environment and others. In order to achieve these development goals, the Royal Commission role has become exceptional and vital.
