Here is the tender offer for furniture for our new diplomatic corps, the EEAS. Not you will be interested to note for the Embassies themselves. Oh no, not that, but more for the residences of our pampered plenipotentiaries,
Purchase of top-of-the-range furniture for the residences of ambassadors-heads of delegation of the European UnionThe bill is estimated at 8,000,000 Euros.
Now there are 130 current EU delegations/embassies around trhe world, which would mean that this largesse could be split at just over 61,000 Euros per country. But, but. Many of these countries, indeed all of them are already in offices, and already have furniture - indeed a frienmd went out to one a year or so ago.

Also interesting is that this website is an official Belarusian Government website, encouraging Belarusian's to compete for the contract.
