Datuk Lee Hwa Beng (simplified Chinese: 李华民; pinyin: Lǐ Huámín) is a Malaysian politician and the former Selangor State Assemblyman for Subang Jaya. He is an accountant by training and served as Port Klang Authority chairman from 2008 to 2011.

Lee is a member of the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA), a component party of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition. He first contested an election in 1990, running for the Damansara Utama state seat. He lost but went on to win the Subang Jaya state seat in 1995. In the 2008 general elections, Lee contested the Kelana Jaya parliamentary seat, but lost out to Parti Keadilan Rakyat newcomer Loh Gwo Burne. Following his defeat, Lee was appointed Port Klang Authority chairman by Transport Minister Ong Tee Keat amid a cloud of controversy over the Port Klang Free Zone scandal.[1]
