Abstract: This study has attempted to develop and apply the analytical hierarchy process model to identify the productive investment sectors in the Sylhet region of Bangladesh, considering nine economic resources available in the region as criteria for selecting the productive sectors from nine potential alternatives. Accordingly, this study has identified accessibility of fund, possibility of high profit and availability of raw materials as the most important criteria for investment and finally, tea industry, fisheries and livestock-based industry and agro-based industry (processing) as the most productive investment sectors in the region.
