Metro Cash & Carry India Pvt Ltd, the Indian arm of the German trading giant Metro AG, hopes to speed up its expansion in the wake of the expected amendments in the Agriculture Produce Marketing Committee Act, according to the Financial Express newspaper.

"We have been slow to expansion in India than other countries but we will catch up that speed now since the biggest stumbling block—the APMC Act—is in the process of amendment," Metro India managing director Harsh Bahadur said.
