BEIJING, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao visited two tent manufacturers in east China's Zhejiang Province on Thursday, urging them to produce as many as possible to meet needs of the quake-hit zone.

Hu also urged them to ensure the quality of their products.

The Chinese government said it needs some three million tents to house the nearly 5 million people displaced by the 8 magnitude earthquake on May 12 in southwestern Sichuan province.
