Mahasthangarh is one of the earliest urban archaeological sites so far discovered in Bangladesh, has been declared as the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC) cultural capital for the year 2016-17. As an SARRC cultural capital, the historic place will host festivals on literature, films, foods and dances from October 2016 to September 2017. Besides, the year 2016-17 has also be declared the SAARC  Year of Cultural Heritage.
The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC ) is an economic and political organization of eight countries in Southern Asia. In terms of population, its sphere of influence is the largest of any regional organization: almost 1.5 billion people, the combined population of its member states. 

So let’s do:
1. Expand the term SAARC ?
2. Name the city, which has been declared as the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC ) cultural capital for the year 2016-17?
