The most effective way to stir public debate and to create public awareness about the EU regional policy dialogue with China and activities with India is through appearances in the mass media. Therefore, the working team ensured extensive coverage of the twinning activities in Europe, China and India, including newspapers as well as TV, radio and social media. This coverage was crucial to give visibility to the programme as well as raise local awareness in the cities and regions involved in Europe, India and China.
