Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo smiles during a meeting at the presidential palace in Manila in this December 10, 2008 file photo.

Chief among them was a botched $329 million national broadband deal with China that was scrapped over allegations of bribery and deal-fixing involving the president's husband.
