one sided[edit]

this page is excessively one-sided and relies heavily on ADB's own sources. I dispute the neutrality. 129.67.43.138 (talk) 17:15, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I agree. So let's improve the article. New worl (talk) 07:28, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Looking for some help on Takeshi Watanabe[edit]

I am trying to find out whether or not the first president of Asian Development Bank (1966-1972) is still alive. The man's name is Takeshi Watanabe and he was born sometime in 1906. I am leaning towards him being alive based on a picture that I found on the ADB website provided below. [[1]]

The most recent ADB President, Tadao Chino, is in the picture; as is Mr. Watanabe, who is seated in the middle. With these two pieces of information in hand, I've deduced that the picture was taken sometime during President Chino's tenure (1999-2005.) If this be true, Watanabe was alive in 1999-2005 and may have made it to 99+ years of age.

I have scoured the web for info on this man and there is absolutley no reference of him dying, or celebrating a 100th birthday. This is a shout out to anyone that may be able to help!Longevitymonger (talk) 21:12, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, can't help you much besides that page 43 in this pdf (published by ADB, October 2004) lists a phone number and email to a person with that name (perhaps you are lucky and it is the person you look for). Besides you could give a try to contact ADB. ----Erkan Yilmaz 18:26, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
If the info at List of Hibiya High School people is correct, perhaps the school or the alumni association could provide some info ? ----Erkan Yilmaz 18:38, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
