Board of Justice
The Board of Justice has begun to roll out UCAVs to enforce border patrol duties, with 107 drones being pressed into service relatively soon.
72 CAIG Sky Saker MALE UCAVs, 8 Norinco Sharp Eye III UCAVs, 6 CAIG Sky Wing III HALE UAVs, and 21 CASC Rainbow CH-4A will be introduced to patrol the frontiers in the Tianshan subdivisions, as well as the Qingzang Gaoyuan. These UAVs are capable of performing high-altitude reconnaissance on border crossings, and have a substantial range and endurance, allowing them to carry out their duties efficiently.
The Board of Justice has also confirmed that the drones will be "armed to the teeth with missiles and rockets"...as a precautionary measure to target illegal border crossers.
The Board of Justice strongly warns its neighbours, asking them to "stick to legal border crossings". The BOJ has also confirmed that those who cross the border illegally "can, and will, be subject to a drone strike, courtesy of the Zhen Border Control Service."

Board of War
The Board of War has started to reform its reserve component, modelling it after the American National Guard, as part of a wider initiative to militarize the Zhen and ensure that the military is capable of handling any and all threats.
Under the new reforms, the Imperial Reserves - containing over 8 million draftees, mostly pressed into service due to unemployment - will be restructured into the Imperial Army Reserve Force (8.85 million personnel) and the Imperial Air Reserve Force (with 120,000 personnel). The two branches are expected to adhere to the same moral and physical standards as their "full-time" active duty counterparts, and are granted the same ranks and insignia of the Board of War. Reservists are eligible to receive all Zhen military awards; the respective Reserve Branches can also bestow their own awards for services rendered both at home and abroad. Reserve units can be mobilized for active duty to supplement regular armed forces during times of war or national emergency declared by the National Assembly, the Sovereign, or the Imperial Cabinet.
The Board of War has also requested a $500 billion ZGD fund injection into the Armed Forces, for the sole purpose of gearing up the newly reformed reserve components. The Imperial Air Reserve Force (IARF) will reportedly set request for tenders for the purchase of 900 aircraft, including combat aircraft, transport aircraft, AWACS/C4/EW aircraft, and various helicopters - in the near future, with massive contracts to be awarded.
In addition to the Zhen Militia and the massive reserve component, the Board of War has also legalised viceroyalty defence forces. Such defense forces can only be activated in times of emergency by a Provincial Assembly, and are under the command of the Viceroy of their respective location. These units will be funded and operated exclusively under local purview, with membership limited to volunteers only, while the Zhen Militia is federally funded and has nationwide jurisdiction. The local militias can also be activated for service in their respective regions upon declaration of a state of emergency within the territory where they serve.

Technological Innovation of Mexican Cartels
While police departments have evolved over time to begin taking advantage of advances in modern technology. The Cartels in México have begun to evolve in their own capabilities in regards to technology. The Sinaloa Cartel is a prime example of the ability for Cartels to innovate as time progresses. The Cartel has begun to utilize drones & even, surprisingly, cryptocurrencies to improve their trafficking capabilities. The drones have been modified to carry drugs thus making the trafficking of drugs over the border easier, & less expensive than having to pay a mule. In addition, cryptocurrencies are making it more difficult for Mexican authorities to successfully track & identify Cartel financial patterns or movements. A source within the Mexican Government also explained that cryptocurrency is making it more difficult to corroborate charges for criminals in México.
Anyways, the Cartels have also begun to modify shipping patterns. Imperial authorities in México have identified a surge in maritime travel & maritime operations carried out by the Cartels. The Mexican Naval Infantry have been busy tackling the increased load of Cartel shipments that are choosing to go through the sea rather than land.
Furthermore, the Cartels have also begun reducing the load of shipments. Which has allowed them to pick more convenient or faster methods than before. This also strained Mexican Law Enforcement in tackling the Drug War.
All of this has presented new challenges to Mexican Authorities in the Drug War. As the Criminal Underworld in México continues to innovate & adapt to the modern world, it will be up to Law Enforcement to adapt just as quickly if not moreso to continue to tackle the Cartel threat effectively.
Mexican Ex-Governor Killed in Jalisco
Recently, Aristóteles Sandoval, the former Governor of Jalisco from 2013-2018, was assassinated in his home state by several unidentified gunmen. The assassination presents a grim reminder of the surging violence in México over the past 5 years as reported by the Imperial Government. What's more, the killings are believed to come from the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. The attack is believed to be political in nature as México begins to head into the midterm elections in 2021. The Cartels reminding politicians that they can strike at any time, anywhere. No matter whether you are retired, or in office.
Caudillo AMLO has presented his condolences to Sandoval's family. AMLO has also pledged to redouble his efforts to combat the Cartels. But his words appear to be falling on deaf ears. Nonetheless, as México begins to usher in new elections. It seems to be common knowledge that electoral violence will begin to surge. Many politicians have begun to increase their security teams, even AMLO has supposedly had a greater number of bodyguards around him in public. Whether this will be effective in preventing the Cartels from carrying out their deadly attacks awaits to be seen.
Board of Revenues
The Board of Revenues is adopting a “forward-looking” investment strategy for the country’s massive foreign-exchange reserves, with plans to “dynamically optimise” its portfolio even as the value of its reserves assets have climbed to a four-and-a-half-year high. This move reflects the Empire's rising concerns about international uncertainties, such as a poor outlook for the global economic recovery, the possibility of financial market turmoil stemming from aggressive policy-easing measures adopted by the West, and potential challenges from foreign forces.
For all of 2020, the Zhen's reserve assets expanded by US$108.6 billion, or 3.5%, year on year, reaching a high point of $3.22 trillion USD in value. Over the years, the Zhen is believed to have reduced its holdings of US dollar assets in recent years as part of a diversification strategy. US Treasury data indicates that the Zhen's holdings of US Treasury securities fell to around $1.054 trillion USD, valued at the lowest level since January 2017. There continues to be strong support in the government calling for the diversification of the Zhen's reserves assets away from the US dollar. As such, the Board plans to begin holding a more diverse collection of reserve assets, including some from Russia, Pakistan, Singapore, New Zealand, Iran, and the European Union. By 2022, the government aims to increase the aforementioned nation's share within the Zhen reserve asset sheet by 3.5%, sustaining it to 4% by 2023.
Board of Works
The Board of Works has invested over $1 billion ZGD into a pilot programme to ensure global COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
Under the said plan, the Board of Works would collaborate with the Board of War to provide and transport free COVID-19 vaccines to all nations where income per head (in United Nations’ normal purchasing power parity terms) is at or below $8,000 USD per annum. This plan could see the inoculation of 5 million people outright, with an additional 5 million to come over the coming weeks.
The cost to the Zhen economy will be minuscule and the organisation of the global programme well within its capacity and ability, proving that the Zhen is a force for positive change and good in the world. As the nation's vaccine capacity and expertise improves, the Board has also said that it would establish a global laboratory, freely available to all prospective vaccine donors and developers from across the world, solely aimed at distributing vaccines to the needy. The Board would also ally with major aid organisations with medical expertise such as the Red Cross, MSF, and UNICEF.
