BANGKOK Jan 29 Thailand's top department store
developer, Central Pattana Pcl, said on Tuesday it
expected 2013 revenue to rise 15 percent thanks to economic
growth, boosted by strong domestic consumption.
Domestic demand should remain strong after a rise in minimum
wages that has led to strong purchasing power, Senior Executive
Vice President Wallaya Chirathivat told reporters.
Central Pattana, part of unlisted retail conglomerate
Central Group, is majority owned by the Chirathivat family, the
country's second richest group, according to a ranking by Forbes
Magazine in 2012.
