According to Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering on Monday, the shipbuilder will sign a 1.1 billion dollar contract with Indonesia next month to build submarines, marking the company's first export order for submarines and the country's largest single overseas defense contract.

Under the contract, DSME, the world's third-largest and Korea's second-largest shipbuilder will build three 1,400 ton submarines for the Indonesian Navy.

The Korean shipbuilder said the company and Indonesia's defense ministry will coordinate details and conclude the deal by November.

DSME had been bidding for the contract against competitors from France, Russia, and Germany since June this year.
