Powered by steady exports and remittances the country's  foreign exchange reserves hit a record $27.49 billion at the end of December, said the central bank data.
The slower pace of import growth, on the back of a fall in global commodities prices, also helped to boost reserves about 23 percent over the corresponding period of last year.
