Free trade zones are undertaking critical educational and historical missions, whose strategic orientation is to explore a new mode of economic cooperation and cultural communication between landlocked countries and those who are participated in Belt and Road Initiative. However, education opening level to the outside world is low, and the scale of educational service business is small. The establishment of free trade zones and the development of education services trade show a relationship of connection, aggregation and interdependence. To develop the education service industry, it is necessary to coordinate with other service industries, and promote the export of education services by improving its quality and efficiency. Taking the University Alliance of the Silk Road as the breakthrough point, promoting mutual recognition of academic values of member universities, we need to implement a quality monitoring system in line with international standards, and promote greater openness of regional education to enhance exchanges.
