The analysis follows the two steps of quantitative analysis tools; Location Quotation (LQ) and Klassen Tipology.The LQ analysis will show of quantifying how concentrated a particular source of income, geographic, and the demographic group is in a region as compared to the nation. It can reveal what makes a particular region “unique” in comparison to the national average. The results showed that the GDRP business sector which has high potential value and high added value significantly spurs economic growth. This article ends with several policy recommendations for lagging regions. The  recommendation and analysis will help to organize the economic growth of each province in a structured manner based on its sector potential.
