The Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu (RCJY) was established on 21 September 1975, as an autonomous organization of the Saudi Arabian Government. The Commission is governed by a Board of Directors and its Chairman reports to the Council of Ministers. The Chairman’s office in Riyadh formulates policies and oversees implementation through two Directorates General; one in Jubail and the other in Yanbu.[1]

The Royal Commission’s Foundation[edit]

In 1975 (1395H) and as a part of the second development plan, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia laid down a development strategy that aims to diversify economy and to minimize dependence on raw oil income. A historical strategic decision was made to support and expand its industry base represented in the Royal Decree No. M/75 which directed the foundation of the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu in 21 September 1975 as an administrative and financial independent organization run by a board of directors whose chairman reports directly to the Council of Ministers. Policies are laid down by the Royal Commission’s headquarters in Riyadh and are executed through the directorates general of both Jubail and Yanbu Industrial Cities.
