The main problem faced by local governments in establishing regional development policies lies in determining the focus of development based on the uniqueness or potential of the region. Different potentials in terms of local human, institutional or physical resources cause different regional characteristics. Development policies in the regions must consider all the potential they have. Therefore, local governments must have the ability to identify which sectors are the strengths or weaknesses for their regions. Sectors that are considered regional superiority have prospects to be developed and encourage the development of other sectors. Meanwhile, a weak sector is not expected to be an obstacle to the development process. This research was conducted to create a model that can be used to determine the leading sectors of sub-districts in Bandung Regency. The identification of leading sectors is done using the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Three criteria with a total of 12 sub-criteria and six alternative sectors become the basis for determining the leading sector. Data collection was carried out by distributing questionnaires with competent district or district government staff respondents in each sector. The results of the study in four sub-districts, found that each sub-district studied had a different leading sector.
