Historically known as a 'rice bowl'of Malaysia, the state of Kedah has shiffed it's focus to a more remunerating sector which is industrial sector. Although agriculture remains as a major contributor to GDP of the state, it's percentage is declining over the years. Agricultural sector in this county contributes 44% of the GDP in 1988 and fell to 35% in 1990. Meanwhile, between the year 1994-1995, the industrial sector growth rate is 60%. However, the agricultural sector growth is only 2.5% primarily resulting from the decries in the domination of paddy and rubber. In this transformation process, we will face the problem of industrial distribution inequality between regions. Industries with a modern technology base will be more concentrated in the developed regions while the less developed regions will continue to be left behind. In addition, this transformation process will also bring the migration problem, especially by the male population and this will increase the "Location Quotient" the researcher will list the imbalance difision in the industrial specialization location by regions and regional specialization location by industry in Kedah.
