Since its founding, EFA has successfully held eleven annual conferences, the initiative meeting included. Aimed at "Building Bridges for Asian Education", Education Forum was established as a high-level platform for Asian high-ranking educators, specialists, and scholars to discuss education cooperation and development issues. 

Technology is changing the world and developing technology is a strategic action that enables the humankind to rise to the global challenges and achieve sustainability. Education has a direct bearing not only on today but also on the future of all nations. Through education, talents that drive the social progress are cultivated; through education, we disseminate and upgrade what has been known, explore what is yet to be known; through education, we are able to understand and change the world so as to create a bright future for the mankind. In the 2016 annual conference, politicians, Nobel Prize laureates, foreign diplomats to China, renowned international experts in technology, education, culture and innovation fields, and representatives from educational institutions, enterprises and media outlets will be invited, giving insights into hot topics such as science popularization, creative industries, vocational education, education investment and financing, elementary education, ecological technology, and preschool physical education. In addition, Asia Foreign Study Scholarship Award Ceremony, Award Ceremony of 11th Asian Students Photography Contest and local school visiting will also be arranged on the sidelines of the annual conference. We hope that the convening of this conference will provide strategic options for the implementation of innovation-driven development initiatives, make clear the features of technological development and the major trend of the future, advance the further application of information technology in education, introduce the cutting-edge technologies and managerial expertise of the world and generate the driving force for the talent cultivation and social progress.
