Former U.S. Senator Bob Dole (R-Kan.) recently signed a contract to work as an advisor to the Taiwanese government. Minister of Foreign Affairs Jason Hu, the former Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative’s Office to the United States, said that Dole’s employment is in accordance with relevant American law since he will not engage in any lobbying of Congress or the administration.
The 1996 Republican presidential candidate, an experienced politician, will provide strategic advice and counseling to help Taiwan join international organizations while commenting on American political developments. Dole’s contract will remain valid for six months, during which he will receive U.S.$30,000 per month in compensation.
