Australia’s ageing population, and its associated costs and social consequences loom large on the Australian political landscape. Australia needs substantive policy responses that are both sustainable and equitable for all members of the community.

With government budgets coming under increasing pressure over the next few decades, the fiscal sustainability of retirement incomes policies will demand greater scrutiny today.  Despite the resilience of the system, there are deep challenges that have the potential to compromise its effectiveness and sustainability.

I would also encourage you to exercise your leadership for Australia by supporting the Committee through participating in our public forums, roundtables and consultation processes.
