There are many reasons why EVA stopped flying to PTY. Some say it was political and some say that the planes weren't filled. I used to take the PTY - TPE
long time ago, but it was very hard to get a seat since the LAX
segment was filled most of the time making no sense for me to take EVA from PTY. I guess EVA wasn't able to get as many passenger for the PTY - LAX
segment only. I hope CI
can fix this problem for their future flights to Ecuador.

By the way, Ecuador doesn't recognize Taiwan as a country. So, no political ties there.
