João Mpilamosi Domingos released the data while speaking to the press at the end of the event on Sunday.
The spokesman attributed the figure to the sale of around 400 tons of products from the field, mainly banana.
The source said that the turnover (estimated at about 480 million Kwanzas) is above this figure, in view of the contacts made and the signing of post-fair agreements.
Mpilamosi Domingos also highlighted the creation of 100 indirect jobs during the fair, visited by some 12,000 people.
The event brought together 250 exhibitors, among nationals (Bengo, Benguela, Luanda, Cuanza Sul and Malanje provinces) and foreigners (Portugal) from different sectors, with stress to the production chain of banana and other agricultural products.
The Banana Fair is an initiative of the Provincial Government of Bengo and organised by Novagrolider, with the support of Caxito Rega.
The event was sponsored by Agrozootec company, aimed at publicising the potential of the region.
