The parliamentary secretary to the Treasurer, Mr. Gary Johns said "The politics of superannuation is to get people to trust it, own it and believe in it," (The Australian, 1993).

Thus, the channels of communication between the government and the employers and between the government and the employees needs to be strengthened.
