Australia and France signed the contract on strategic partnership which body — construction of 12 modern submarines. Writes The Local about it. The agreement is signed during the visit to Australia of the minister of armed forces of France Florans Parli. It, in particular, establishes conditions according to which Australia gets access to this or that intellectual property and also actions in case of non-compliance with terms. The contract means construction for Canberra of submarines by the French consortium Naval Group earlier known as DCNS. Contract value — 30 billion euros. Submarines will gather on new shipyard in South Australia. It is expected that the construction of the first of them will be completed at the beginning of the 2030th years. The last is planned to be put for arms at the beginning of the 2040th. They will be in operation to the 2080th. The Australian prime minister Scott Morrison welcomed signing of the contract, having called the plan "extremely ambitious". According to him, it is a part of the largest investment in the history of the country in defense in peace time.
