FIJI will be in a better state to address food and nutrition insecurity following the revival of the Fiji Institute of Agricultural Science.

Agriculture Minister Colonel Inia Seruiratu officially re-launched the institute, which had been inactive for the past 20 years, in Suva on Thursday night.

"We will work hand in hand with various institutions, donor agencies, international and regional organisations to address food and nutrition insecurity, environmental issues and modernise Fiji's agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors," Col. Seruiratu said.

"The FIAS is known to early agriculture pioneers in Fiji as the central body that provided sound practical advice to harness strategies for Fiji's agriculture research and development.

"FIAS revival will provide a platform to all those interested in advancing agriculture in Fiji."
