Muzammil Hussain Sabri, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry lauded the vision of S.M.Munir for forming United Business Group (UBG) and introducing a democratic culture in the business politics. He said the landslide victory of UBG in the recent elections of FPCCI reflected the trust and confidence of the business community of the country in the visionary leadership of UBG’s Patron-in-Chief S.M. Munir who played a key role in ending the 13 years long monopoly and dictatorial rule over the affairs of apex trade body of the country.

Abdul Rauf Alam, Chairman ICCI Founder Group said UBG under the dynamic leadership of S.M.Munir has emerged as an important think tank to advise the government on key economic policies. He stressed it was high time that instead of falling victim to disunity and rift, business community of the country should get united and extend full support to the UBG and FPCCI in order to strengthen their hands for economic revival of the country.  
He also lauded the decision of S.M.Munir for nominating Mian Muhammad Adrees as a presidential candidate for FPCCI as he was a well-qualified business professional and the best choice for this esteemed position.
