SEOUL, Nov. 30 — LG Electronics Inc., South Korea's second-largest electronics maker, said Monday it has stopped the production of personal computers and is fully outsourcing it to local and Taiwanese companies.

For years, LG has gradually boosted outsourcing of personal computers to cut costs. LG's direct production of personal computers ceased in September, according to company officials.

With the decision, a personal computer plant in LG's plant in Kunshan, China's Jaingsu Province, was switched to produce vehicle navigation systems, the company said. FFC/mec
