Chinese officials have agreed to lift the ban on U.S. pork imports they imposed last spring out of fear of swine flu.

The announcement, made on Thursday, is a major boost to the beleaguered U.S. pork industry, which had already been suffering from a downturn when China announced the ban in May 2009.

No date has been set for lifting the ban, but Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack hailed it as a breakthrough nonetheless.
