Scott Morrison warns that government support measures are only a temporary form of “medication” for a sick economy and microeconomic reforms in skills development and industrial relations will be needed to spur growth.
In an address to the National Press Club on Tuesday, Morrison will announce a push to add conditions to $1.5bn in federal funding given to the states for skills and outline a cooperative process with unions and business to identify productivity-boosting changes to industrial relations.
