The Literature, Publishing and Translation Commission was established in February 2020 (10/6/1441 AH).

The role of the Commission is to regulate and manage the literature, publishing and translation sectors in the Kingdom.

Our purpose is to work towards the goals of Vision 2030 and the Saudi National Culture Strategy: promoting our culture as a way of life, enabling it to contribute towards economic growth, and creating opportunities for international cultural exchange.

The Commission will seek to develop sector capability and support content production. We will improve the legislative environment to advance these three important arts, as well as encouraging investment and involvement of the non-profit sector.
