Li Suqing [Chinese: 李素清] (14 January 1899? – 11 June 2016) was a Chinese supercentenarian claimant.

Li claims to have been born on 14 January 1899 in Huludao, Liaoning Province. She and her husband were local farmers. Li came to Shanghai in January 1975 with her daughter-in-law.

She lived with her youngest daughter, Tian Yulan, her son-in-law, and her nurse. She had been recognized as the oldest living person in Shanghai in 2008, and enjoyed spending time with her grandson. In May 2016, she got pneumonia, passing away in June.

At the time of her death, Li, if her age claim was accurate, would have been one of the last living persons of the 1800s and the world's oldest person. However, the official world title was with Emma Morano of Italy, born 29 November 1899.
