The Royal Commission was born as per Royal Decree No. (M/75) dated 16/9/1395H which directed its establishment and assignment of the construction, operation and development of the infrastructure in Jubail and Yanbu industrial cities to host the petrochemical industries and to achieve the huge and ambitious industrial programs in Jubail, on the Arabian Gulf coast, and Yanbu on the Red Sea coast, as per a master plan for each and to tie this industrial plan with the comprehensive integrated development plan of the country.

The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu has managed to attract investments, provide hundreds of thousands of jobs for Saudi citizens and nationalize the latest industrial technologies worldwide. Such efforts gave the Royal Commission a special rank among similar international industrial cities. The growth rate of the achieved investments and the need to host the growing number of investment requests prompted the Saudi Leadership to expand the cities into Jubail (2) and Yanbu (2). And thanks to Allah, under the wise leadership, achievements flowed until Jubail and Yanbu became mega industrial forts pointed at with admiration.

After the huge success of the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu in the construction and operation of Jubail and Yanbu industrial cities, the Council of Ministers issued Royal Decision No. (355) dated 30/10/1430H which directed the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu to manage Ras Al Khair Industrial City and to provide services for mining and other industries on the same pattern of Jubail and Yanbu industrial cities.

The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu was assigned the management and operation of Jazan City for Primary and Downstream Industries as well as per a Royal Decree considering its continuous and impressive successes. As an acknowledgment of the Royal Commission’s efforts in different fields, it received several international, regional, and local awards and certificates.
