The selection of a flagship industry is based on whether the industry`s developmental impact is great and whether the industry can be the center of the national economy. Here, a ripple effect may be derived by analyzing the forward and backward linkage effects, but in the case of industries that are the centerpieces of the national economy, each researcher reported different results. Consequently, they could not agree on their flagship industry despite belonging to the same time. This study presents a prestige centrality of network analysis as a way of analyzing an industry, which was the center of the national economy, and performed empirical analysis utilizing the 2013 I-O Table. The analysis showed that the industries classified as those with high centrality include the energy industry, which is essential for economic development, can create a synergy effect with other industries, such as the transportation industry, industries with a high level of export and employment, such as electronics and chemicals, and industries for domestic demand, such as wholesale and retail, food services and accommodation.
