The Committee will ask the Ambassadors whether they feel the EEAS has strengthened the EU’s position in external relations and improved coherence and consistency in EU policy. They will seek views on how the creation of the EEAS has impacted on the foreign policy of their countries and whether they feel some countries have undue power and influence within the EEAS.

The witnesses will also be asked whether the current budget for the EEAS is appropriate or if it should be provided with greater resources.
