The final steps in the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty have been reached with the appointment of Belgian Prime Minister  Herman van Rompuy as President of the European Council, and the British Baroness (Cathy) Ashton as High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. She will chair the meetings of the Foreign Affairs Council. She will also hold the post of Vice-President of the European Commission.

In addition, and less publicized, French Pierre de Boissieu, the current Deputy Secretary General of the Council of the EU, will become its Secretary General.
