Yanbu Map

Yanbu was originally an important fishing coast on the Red Sea. Therefore, very naturally, fishing was still the most important source of employment in this coastal plain. However, in the past 2 decades,
Yanbu has dramatically transformed into one of the most developed cities of Saudi Arabia. Yanbu's ports are considered to be the major exportation ports of Saudi Arabia and it has acquired the stature of an important industrial city. Together with industrial development, there were major steps taken to convert Yanbu into a vast residential city of Saudi Arabia that would consist of all the major modern facilities.

Yanbu transformed into an industrial hub for 4 industries including the primary category, oil-based category, light manufacturing industries and other secondary industries that could support Saudi Arabian economy and business. Yanbu was planned with the aim of modernizing Saudi Arabia's economy and strengthening its business. The new industrial city of Yanbu can be described to be the most well planned modern city of Saudi Arabia, with an infrastructure that could well rival most Western cities of the world. Yanbu today has developed into the most attractive residential and industrial city of Saudi Arabia. 8 heavy industries are also located at Yanbu.
