German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President François Hollande will discuss this week how Europe can keep email traffic away from U.S. servers.

Merkel is planning to discuss this issue when she meets her French colleague on Wednesday, she said in a weekly podcast.

“We will talk with France about how we can maintain a high level of data protection. Above all, we will discuss which European providers we have who offer security to citizens. So that you don’t have to cross the Atlantic with emails and other things, but also can build up communication networks within Europe,” Merkel said Saturday.
