The Thai arm of French retail giant Carrefour is set to bolster registered capital for expansion by a further 1.5bn baht (US$33m). The money will be added to the 7bn baht (US$154m) already set aside by CenCar Co to fund expansion. Pascal Billaud, managing director of CenCar, revealed that during 2002 the money would fund the building of two new large stores, in Samrong and Onnuj, and new outlets in Bang Khae, Ratchadapisek, Bang Bon and Bang Pla Kot.
