    () (Department of Economics, Padjadjaran University)


The result of an “overlay analysis approach” suggests that Bandung municipality (Kota Bandung) need to re-emphasize the role of service sectors such electricity, gas, water supply, financial sector, and others service sector as engine of economic development. Those sectors are found to be the most promising in term of its future potential as the driver of economic growth of the region. The potential economic sector of Bandung regency (Kabupaten Bandung) on the other hand are still dominated by its traditionally-dominant sector such as agriculture and manufacturing.
