    What does :There is no concern." mean exactly?

    Does it mean there is no need to worry or something is not a big deal for instance? Thanks.

    I would say "not a concern", but it means "no big deal" "not a problem".

    Re: What does :There is no concern." mean exactly?

    In AusE, we use 'm' for million, 'bn' for billion: $25m, $25bn. Also 25k is used by some newspapers for 25,000.
    Is that different elsewhere?
    It's true that M (Mega) also means a million in SI units, as opposed to m (milli), but those terms take an affix, eg. MB (Megabyte), mm (millimeter), etc.

    Does AusE mean US English? I searched for it but no exact result.
