HANOI, Vietnam, March 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cavico Corp. (Nasdaq:CAVO) ("Cavico" or the "Company"), a major infrastructure civil engineering design and construction conglomerate based in Vietnam, today announced that its subsidiary, Cavico Infrastructure, is negotiating for several new contracts as the Company begins the second quarter of 2011.
