R.S. Kamat, director general of the state's top trade body, said in a statement that at a meeting with Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday, Google India's managing director Rajan Anandan also proposed to sponsor 1,000 start-up businesses in the state.

"Anandan offered to undertake complete digitisation of the state so that entire Goa is on a 3D digital map and becomes totally tourist friendly. Goa would be the first state in the world to do this. Google's 3D technology can help Goan enterprises go online and get globally connected through the Google network," Kamat said.

He said Parrikar has promised to appoint a nodal officer to take up further discussions with Google.
