The office of international relations and protocol is created under the office of
the governor. The office shall serve as the state's official liaison and protocol office with
foreign governments. The governor shall appoint a director of the office of international relations and
protocol, who shall serve at the pleasure of the governor. Because of the diplomatic character of this office, the director and staff will
be exempt from the provisions of chapter 41.06 RCW. The director will be paid a salary to be fixed by the governor in accordance with
the provisions of RCW 43.03.040. The director may hire such personnel as may be necessary for the general administration
of the office. To the extent permitted by law, state agencies may temporarily loan staff to the
office of international relations and protocol to assist in carrying out the office's
duties and responsibilities under this chapter. An arrangement to temporarily loan staff must have the approval of the staff members
to be loaned and the directors of the office and the agencies involved in the loan.
