How Much Money Does Taiwan's President Make?

I came across an interesting article on ChinaSMACK, interesting not because it declared Taiwan's President Ma Ying-jeou saves more money than he makes as president (he owns several buildings and has an investment portfolio) but for the actual amount he makes.

Ma makes NTS476,169 (US $16,246) which amounts to NTS$5,721,228 (US$194,952). Compare that to the amount the US President makes, $400.000, and some wonder if that salary is too high. What do you think?
