Pope Francis will headline the Fortune/Time Global Forum this December, Time Inc. announced on Tuesday.

Time said the two-day forum in Rome, which will focus on the global economy, will culminate in a special address by Pope Francis at the Vatican.

It will bring together Fortune 500 CEOs, members of the TIME 100 most influential people and other academic, religious and business leaders, according to Time Inc.

"[They will] discuss international economic issues, including creating jobs, eliminating poverty, solving the refugee crisis and broadening prosperity," the company said in a statement.

Pope Francis regularly speaks about global economic issues, "raising concerns about the growing wealth gap and criticizing the ‘dictatorship of an impersonal economy lacking a truly human purpose," Time noted.

The Fortune/Time forum, titled "The 21st Century Challenge: Forging a New Social Compact," will be led by Time Inc. Chief Content Officer and Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alan Murray and Time Inc. News Group Editorial Director and Time Editor-in-Chief Nancy Gibbs.
