According to the bank's report on balance of payments, the country's 12-month rolling deficit stood at nearly $51.6 billion in January. 

"This development in the current account is mainly attributable to $4.54 billion increase in the goods deficit recording net outflow of $7.63 billion, as well as $82 million increase in primary income deficit to $479 million," the bank said.
