Part of speech

Post by Rustamsher » Mon Jun 10, 2013 2:24 pm

In 2011 two-way trade turnover between the two countries reached $167 million, up 9.8 percent over 2010.

Is the word in bold an adjective, adverb or preposition here?

Kindly re-post, underlining the word in question, as bold type seems not to be visible.
