The next step will be the opening of a permanent Bureau of CAHEA. The Bureau will operate on parity terms, with the inclusion of a representative for each country in its composition. The mission of the Bureau will be to increase the attractiveness of higher education in Central Asian countries through the promotion of Bologna reforms in the region. Promoting the implementation of the agreed principles of the Bologna Process in Central Asian countries at the regional, national and university levels will lead to an increase in the competitiveness of higher education systems.

The conference will end with the adoption of a joint statement on the opening of a permanent CAHEA Bureau, which will be located in the Bologna Process and Academic Mobility Center of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
