The Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s chief economist Ross Lambie says any further increase in the superannuation guarantee should be dependent on an increase in productivity. Australian Industry Group CEO Innes Willox supports the long-term goal of lifting the super guarantee to 12 per cent; however, he is open to further delaying the rise, citing factors such as the cost to businesses and the need for real wages to increase. AustralianSuper CEO Ian Silk argues that the increase in the super guarantee has been legislated, and it has already been delayed twice.
