The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Eric Bleeker, senior technology analyst, and Jeremy Phillips, CTO, discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Eric and Jeremy continue their rundown of tech trends for 2012 by looking at e-commerce growth in China.
