UK - Experts from around the world have been in talks with the UK's Personal Accounts Delivery Authority (PADA) to offer advice on the personal accounts system which will be introduced into the country in 2012.
Australia's superannuation system was set up 20 years ago and includes mandatory saving for all those in employment.
A spokesperson for PADA said: "We are looking at other countries to see if they have anything that they can help us to deliver in terms of a low cost pension scheme in the UK.
"We don't pretend we have all the answers and we are in discussions with a wide range of individuals, not just overseas but also in the UK," added the spokesperson.
David John, senior research fellow at US think tank, The Heritage Foundation, has also met with PADA. His suggestions for the authority include phasing higher numbers of employees into the scheme.
John said: "PADA will take on lessons from other countries. It has had a tremendous amount of discussion back and forth.
"PADA has learned lessons the DWP (Department of Work and Pensions) should have learned a long time ago," he concluded.
