According to the written confession of Rokusashi Takebe in 1950, he was born in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan in 1893. He was once chief of general affairs of the "Manchukuo".
"The first 5-year industrial development plan of the "Manchukuo" was completed in 1937";
"It was impossible for the "Manchukuo" to implement this plan by itself, and it must largely rely on Japan’s aid. So this plan was made after full consultation with the Japanese government and army headquarters";
"The first plan was amended in 1939 to enlarge its scale.… This was decided after discussion with the Japanese government and army headquarters. Key figures in amending the plan were Naoki Hoshino and Nobusuke Kishi";
"The second industrial development plan was made in 1942, following the first one." "The formulation of the second plan was during my term of chief of general affairs. The key figures in its formulation were Furumi Tadayuki and Aoki Minoru (see the following part for reference). As for the Kwantung Army, mainly Colonel Obi of the Fourth Section took part in the guidance".
