Did I understand Uncle Google correctly that a competition was held to name the ship and the lander?
It's a bit of a shame that it has just ended :(.
Yes, the deadline for this activity is 24:00 on September 30, 2023 Beijing time. Unfortunately, the deadline has already passed.

Has China turned away from Russia in joint race to the moon?

Senior Chinese space scientist’s presentation at global astronautical congress in Baku leaves out Russian role in joint lunar research mission

Omission not a surprise given Russia’s poor performance in space in recent years, some analysts say

Twenty years ago, China launched the Shenzhou-5 mission, carrying Yang Liwei to space. Since then, the Chinese crewed space program has evolved a lot into what now powers a constantly crewed station.

CMSA: "Crewed lunar landing mission was approved by the government earlier this year. We are targeting before 2030 to land Chinese astronauts on the moon."

With 66 launches so far, 2023 has been a busy year for China. The country started normal operations on the Tiangong station, performed several hop tests, and successfully launched a methane rocket.

China’s 2023: closing out a busy year amidst preparations for lunar missions
written by Adrian Beil December 27, 2023
 
Following China’s impressive 2022, the country once again managed to launch over 60 times in a calendar year. While the year lacked high-profile missions, more are on the horizon as China focuses on the Moon.

Wang Xiaojun, head of the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology (CALT), was replaced by Zhang Zhongyang.

CALT is a subsidiary of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC).

So reusable 2nd stage of Long March 9 is something for 2040-2050? That is rather long time. I wonder if private company can step up and progress a bit faster, since private company in China are moving pretty fast.

A number of years ago I was talking to a US technology expert who had done an assessment of China's space industry, including going to China to talk to as many people as they could. They told me that commercial aerospace companies are majority-owned by the Chinese government. So the definitions don't apply to China in the same way as the West.

I recall its depend entirely on some company. Some are purely funded from private sector, while other are backed by provincial government or SoE. I think Landspace and Orienspace for example is mostly privately funded.

I still expect lots of private-public cooperation though.
