Centre director Thanawat Polwichai said a recent survey on spending during the upcoming Chinese New Year festival on Feb 14-16 indicates that more than 56.86 billion baht in cash flows will be generated which is a 3.5% increase over the previous year.

 

Most of the spending will be for religious offerings, Ang Pao (red envelope) cash gifts, clothing and travel.
