    Bio?

    Hi,

    Would you please tell me what "Bio" in the phrase below means? I assume that it must be a typo. Am I right?

    "By now Iran is able to export substantially more oil than in the past, more than US$ 100 Bio. of frozen assets outside the country have been freed, a growing number of banks are now linked to the Swift system again, and an increasing interest across the international community to do busines with and invest in Iran."


    P.S. As many times, I can not provide you the source.

    Thanks

    I would take it to be a typo. Otherwise, it's an obscure abbreviation of "billion."
