As the Spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry from 2005 to the present, Qin Gang is the public face of China.

On 9 June 2009, a BBC reporter asked Qin Gang about the justification for the compulsory installation of the Green Dam Youth Escort filtering software. Qin Gang replied:

"Do you have children? If you have children or if you plan to have children, you will be able to understand why Green Dam Youth Escort is essential for protecting the children of China against harmful information on the Internet. Let me repeat this: the Internet in China is fully open and the Chinese Government plays an active role in promoting the healthy development of the Internet."

More of Qin Gang's memorable quotations are translated at here.
