This study aims to determine the leading industry in Padang Pariaman Regency, West Sumatera, Indonesia, based on data from the Central Statistics Agency and expert opinion on the Regency Industrial Development Plan. This research combines qualitative and quantitative techniques. This study uses four experts' opinions consisting of three governments and one academician. The criteria and sub-criteria are determined based on the locally adapted National Industrial Development Master Plan. The method used in this study is a combination of the Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) method, which integrates the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) to calculate the weights and the Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) to determine the order of priority. The top five leading processing industries were selected: the food industry, the leather/footwear industry, the chemical industry, the apparel industry, and other processing industries.
