Combining theories on leading industries selection and taking into consideration of the characteristics of comprehensive cities, the paper establishes a leading industries selection index system of comprehensive cities. Factor analysis model is used to analyze the leading industries selection in comprehensive cities, and an empirical study of Hangzhou is carried out. The study shows Hangzhou should take financial industry, chemical raw material, chemicals manufacturing, mechanical manufacturing and intelligence transmission as its leading industries.
