The aim of this thesis is to investigate the structure and the effectiveness of the investment incentive system in Turkey. The theoretical definition and the economic and social targets of incentives, and the direction, problems and the effectiveness of the investment incentive system are investigated. This study finds that the most prominent target of investment incentives is to alleviate the unemployment problem in Turkey. The regional investment incentives seem to be successful in the western part of the country to some extent. The investment incentive system does not seem to be successful in directing the investment to underdeveloped regions of the country. The investment incentive system has no strong effects on directing the sectoral distribution of investments.
