Google Maps in Hong Kong

Today is a rather big day for Hong Kong users since Google has updated their Google Maps database in Hong Kong and Google Finance now supports Hong Kong stock listings. Google Maps will now show building names and MTR exits in Hong Kong. However, searching building names will only return user-created content (if any). Although there is still no official word from Google yet, the copyright notice at the bottom right suggests that Google has partnered with MapKing, a famous local mapping company. Hopefully, business listing will soon be available in Hong Kong.

It now seems the MTR exits have been removed from Google maps... anyone know why?
