Export async config module node.js

In my project i want to use puppeteer and share it across multiple files. I want to store it as config file where i can export it and get my page variable. Problem with that is when I am importing that by require() it returns a me promise with status pending. What is then the solve?

// configFile.js
const puppeteer = require('puppeteer');

module.exports = (async () => {
  const browser = await puppeteer.launch();
  const page = await browser.newPage();
  return page;
const page = require('./configFile'); // Promise { <pending> }

How to resolve that promise before it can be exported? Is there an await for module.exports?
