China has lifted a suspension on the importation of shrimp from Ecuadorian exporter Empacreci, Ecuador's Production Minister Ivan Ontanded Berru said Wednesday on Twitter.

On Monday a similar suspension was lifted on Ecuador's largest shrimp exporter Santa Priscila.

Sanctions were removed after confirmation of compliance with Chinese biosecurity standards.

Authorities are also reviewing the case of a third Ecuadorian shrimp producer, EdPacif.

The move follows almost daily talks between Chinese and Ecuadorian authorities.
