Update: 2:02PM THE opening of the new Fiji Maritime Academy in Suva today marked a new beginning for students, teachers, supporters and former students of the school.

For the 500 plus students who attended the school, the re-branding and opening of the new school is something they had been waiting for for quite some time.

Fiji Maritime Academy's chief executive officer Captain Suren Gurusinghe said the new academy would help boost students learning.

"The school has everything that will help the students succeed in life and achieve their goal," he said.

While opening the academy, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said he was delighted to be there to celebrate a milestone in Fiji's development as a maritime nation.

"This is a major leap forward for our nation in the training of those men and women who we rely on to carry us over the seas and to carry the cargoes on which our economy and well-being depends," he said.
