Brief history.. SACU was founded in 1965, the first Chairman and prime mover was.. Joseph Needham.. of Cambridge University ably assisted by.. Derek Bryan.. In the.. 1970s.. SACU was one of very few organizations who could arrange visits to China (see.. early SACU tours.. ).. Anyone wishing to travel had to pass an interview and attend a short course.. SACU has always kept independent with no political and governmental affiliations, during difficult times it has sought understanding and provide accurate reporting.. Membership numbers at one stage reached 1,800 with offices and staff in London.. The tours flourished into the 1980s, but with the opening up of China, mainstream travel companies began competing and so SACU China Tours ceased in 1989.. Throughout the last 45 years, SACU has published a newsletter and/or a magazine with specialist articles on all aspects of China and Chinese culture.. The organisation is now more modest in size and is run by a dedicated bunch of volunteers.. SACU's logo is the Chinese character for friendship.. 'you'.. It is made up of two elements both representing hands and so forms an appropriate character to represent friendship through the joining of hands.. The character is usually seen in conjunction with other characters giving the word an association of friendship.. For example.. peng you - 'friend' and.. you ai - 'friendly affection'.. The character 'ai' means 'love' or 'affection' and itself includes the friendship character..
