It’s well known that receiving foreign investments is one of the main targets of Turkey’s economic policies since 1980’s. As a result of these policies, foreign-capitalized companies have considerable market shares in many sectors from automotive to mining, from food and beverage to petroleum, from agriculture to chemicals, from construction to pharmaceutical products. On the other hand, in last year’s there is a remarkable and growing public reaction to the foreign investments especially investments related to natural resources and environmental areas. Thus, in near future MNC’s which wanted to invest in Turkey would need to take more attention to public’s tendencies then government policies. In this study, main policies concerning MNC investments in Turkey will be evaluated and public’s approaches to foreign investments in environmental and natural resources will be discussed. In this study government perspectives of the foreign investments made by MNC’s and stimulation policies for foreign investments made by MNC’s will be evaluated in terms of sustainable development policies. Then, public’s reactions which raised especially after 2000’s to the foreign investments in environmental and natural resources and potential results of these reactions for future investments will be evaluated. Method of the study, based on literature review, and analysis of statistics and social event. In the study, the sensitivity against environmental and natural resource investments was found to be active in the past. Thus, MNC, for this type of investment, must more focus on changes in Turkey.
