South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation is to adopt "Connectivity For Shared Prosperity" as the key theme of its 18th summit meeting to be held in Nepal from 22nd to 27th of November.

This idea comes after Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa mooted connectivity as the central agenda of SAARC.

The President proposed this idea in a meeting with SAARC secretary General Arjun Thapa in Colombo, on the 10th of this month.

A meeting of the advisory committee headed by veteran diplomat Dr Bhekh Bahadur Thapa was held in Kathmandu on Thursday.

Heads of state and governments from eight South Asian countries are expected to attend the meeting of the SAARC, which is a group of eight countries of South Asia, created in 1985 to foster greater cooperation in the region along the ASEAN model.
